  5. 5. SoundCloud is an online audio distribution platform which allows musicians to collaborate, promote and distribute their music. SoundCloud was established in August, 2007, in Berlin, Germany, by sound designer Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss. It had the intention of allowing musicians to share recordings with each other, but later transformed into a full publishing tool which also allowed musicians to distribute their music tracks. The SoundCloud Headquarters is definitely not the typical of- fice space. The interior of the office is wide open and interac- tive, with large panels of glass creating separate rooms, but its transparency helps keep the individuals within connected. It must be a fun time working at the SoundCloud Headquar- ters, as it’s fully equipped with group-oriented work stations, ping pong tables, turn tables and instruments.
