Linkin Park founding member Mike Shinoda to publish generative NFT music

Mike Shinoda, a founding member of Linkin Park, announced that he will publish a new music project called Ziggurats, a generative NFT series.

On December 3, the collection of 5,000 mini mixtapes will be launched on Tezos.

Non-fungible NFTs have been touted for their possible use case in music, but the industry hasn't seen a major project take advantage of the technology.

Mike Shinoda, a founding member and current frontman of Linkin Park, recognized the potential of the technology and is set to release his own NFT collection.

The musician announced earlier this week that he will publish new music as a generative NFT series called Ziggurats. A collection of 5,000 mini-mixtapes will be released on Tezos, each with unique music and cover art.

Each NFT in the series Ziggurats will feature songs with the same lyrics but with different cover art and music. The combination of music and art will be unique because of a computer algorithm based on pre-selected inputs, which makes the series unique.

According to a report from XTZ.News, the series will be sold on the project site ziggurats.xyz, with each NFTs going for 15 XTZ or just under $75 at current prices. A version of the song will be available on streaming services for users who don't want to purchase the NFT.
