Indian composer A. R. Rahman taps into the metaverse
Oscar-winning composer A. R. Rahman established the Katraar metaverse platform to encourage new music and art.
A. R. Rahman, who won the Oscar for Best Original Score for his work on the blockbuster film Slumdog Millionaire, has developed the Katraar metaverse platform to encourage new music compositions and other creative forms.
“Katraar is a group of educated individuals who can change the world,” tweeted Rahman. “This platform aims to bring in new skills, technologies, and to provide direct income to support developing technologies and likely bridge them to the future,” he said.
Rahman said that Katraar intends to introduce rare and unique non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in music, art, and storytelling in collaboration with the HBAR Foundation.
According to the Katraar website, Rahman will share some of his unique works via the website. Rahman’s accomplishments include two Academy Awards, two Grammys, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe.
According to research by Deloitte, the metaverse might contribute up to US$1.4 trillion annually to Asia’s GDP by 2035, or up to 2.4% of the entire GDP. According to the paper, the metaverse might potentially generate new markets and enterprises as well as job prospects.
