Claw was initially started to answer our personal needs as musicians. It all started with the Echo Doppler case. This French dub band is composed of 5 musicians and one of the key members had to move to Grenoble (France) three years ago. Composing new tracks became complicated and the group was slowing down.
We thought about an online tool that could help bands affected by distance issues. We realized that it could also solve more problems like time issues , tools incompatibilities , lack of engagement from certain bandmates, etc.
FYI, Claw stands for Cloud Audio Workstation.
First problems met as musicians, first ideas for a solution, first brainstorms on a Google Doc...
Claw is the winner project of the Boost Your Code contest organized by Inria for computer science students: one year paid contract to develop the idea.

A first "proof of concept" prototype is developed
Pitch sessions at MaMA Event in Paris, France
Longtime friends and close to the project, Glyph gets involved. Claw takes a step ahead thanks to the young French web agency
