Soundscape

Music has always been an integral part of people’s lives. People use music to celebrate, to get through a rough time, to laugh, to complain, you name it. Music is important to people.

In the modern day, music is more accessible than ever. However, even so, it’s still sometimes diffcult to find music you like. Nowadays we have Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud and so many more options. They all
rovide a myriad of music and suggestions based on algorithms. And their algorithms work alright. But sometimes one service has this album and another has better (insert feature here) , and it’s all getting in the
way of helping people find music they enjoy. This site aims to be a neutral place in which people can find music they enjoy and where it is available.

Often times people hear of new music from friends as well. And music lends itself to that sort of conversation and so what this site also aims to do is to bring people back into the mix. When someone uses the site they are getting suggestions which are from people. It’s all about connecting people with music they’ll like in an efficient manner and doing so using real recommendations from real people, not algorithms analyzing sound waves and genres descriptors etc.
