Sound Thing


Walk into a pub/bar and your spotify playlist/favourites start to influence the jukebox.

Running as a background app on your smartphone, upon entering a Spotify jukebox venue, the app shares your musical tastes with the jukebox, to influence the music played. The venue jukebox would have the strongest influence.

You can also discover new music by learning the musical tastes of people around you, and being suggested music which you have not yet heard but may enjoy. So, for example, at a gig - where everyone has an interest in the music being played and so it's quite likely that other people at the gig may also enjoy music you may like but not yet know.
