Anthony Manning-Franklin

Currently developing a real-world analytics platform and helping people solve tough problems with web apps. In 2012 I founded Farugi to empower independent musicians by enabling them to control how they monetise their music. We did this by building a social music distribution platform. It was insanely fun and equally challenging. I developed technologies such as custom recommendation engines, real time social experiences incorporating news feeds, comments, and messaging. All of which worked alongside a dynamic music and merchandise marketplace populated by products that were listed and supplied by the artists themselves. Prior to launching Farugi, I had been working within the music industry for over 10 years, beginning as a performer and promoter but primarily as a sound engineer and producer. In 2007 I opened Midas Touch Studios and over the next 6 years I worked with artists such as Screaming Life, Michael Swann, The Red Paintings, Tempest Rising and many more. I’ve had my work aired on over 200 radio stations internationally.
