FarPlay is a labor of love, created by musicians for musicians.
It is the brain-child of acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Dan Tepfer. Beginning in 2020, he channeled his concern about Covid-induced social isolation into a software development effort designed to bring musicians together over the internet. Dan then teamed up with veteran VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) developer — and theoretical physics PhD — Anton Runov to create FarPlay, which launched in public beta in October 2021.
In January 2022, Dan and Anton turned FarPlay into a full-fledged startup. A few months later, Martyna Goralska added her background in management and organizational skills to the team, becoming its director of operations. FarPlay launched in full release in July 2022.
