ABOUT US

putting creators in control.

Starchive was created because we believe that what you create should tell the story you want to tell, should be easy to curate, publish, and sell, and that it should bring you freedom.

Over ten years ago, we worked with Bob Dylan to archive his entire catalog. This glimpse behind the curtain of a global star’s archive helped us understand the extreme value in being able to create, use, refashion, and reuse art – for financial benefit and also the benefit of repeated joy from using the same creations.

We took that knowledge and created a platform that will enable Commercial Creators, Cultural Creators, and Community Creators, in every medium, to do the same.

There are a couple of tenets that propel us.

It shouldn’t be just the icons and household names that are able to spend less time organizing and more time creating. The art you create is every bit as important as the art every other creative is making.

It shouldn’t be tech companies who are determining who has access to your habits and demographics. The tech-creator revolution is here to give you control over what you share, and to whom.

peter agelasto

evangelist • inventor • endlessly seeking • archaeologist • founder
living at the extreme edges of media (r)evolution

Many years ago, Peter was making music in a barn-turned-recording studio and noticed that musicians were jotting down lyrics and riffs and ideas and, many times, just adding them to the other pages of lyrics and riffs and ideas that were already floating around the studio. This was a light bulb moment of realizing that many artists and creators don’t like to take the time to organize things – it’s often just not how we are wired.

Short on the heels of that realization came another one: what we do like, is to be able to find the things we have created.
