Heap seems like the kind of person who would support mulitple solutions to "the problem". PeerTracks should definitely contact her.

Cob, you should contact her and try to bring her on board with peertracks. If she's truly only interested in helping artists then she may well be open to helping as peertracks is likely further ahead than any new project. It would be great for an artist who is passionate about blockchain tech to help peertracks and it's not as if notes are overly expensive if she also wanted to invest.

Part two is out

http://www.forbes.com/sites/georgehoward/2015/07/28/imogen-heap-gets-specific-about-mycelia-a-fair-trade-music-business-inspired-by-blockchain/

She says that she is in talks with the guys from ethereum to actually bring this project to life. She acknowledges that people are already working on a music blockchain and says that someone is almost there(PeerTracks?). Anyways she goes in depth to the ideas that she has and how it would work. So much of it is very similar to the ideas already discussed here. This space is definitely heating up.

The artist Imogen Heap is working on a blockchain based music service. Its called Mycelia...

You may know her from this song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYIAfiVGluk

Ms. Heap acknowledges that we’re some time away from “solving” the problem, but Ms. Heap’s vision – a project she refers to as Mycelia – for how this change might come about is the most fully-formed I’ve yet to hear from anyone.
 

Very interesting interview.
Goes on to say
Watch this space, Imogen Heap is primed, and it’s about to get interesting.

The whole interview can be found here

It's a two part interview. Part one does not get into how this system will work. Basically says that the music industry is going to implode in about five years in the future when artists get sick of the awful deals they have been dealing with for all of time.

Then goes on to discuss how this blockchain cryptocurrency idea where artists will all be connected will be the most treasured database of all time.
