Musicovery.com is the first interactive and personalized webradio enabling its users to generate in a few clicks a musical programme adapted to the various listening situations and their preferences. A virtual remote control allows the auditor to navigate among a variety of moods and styles of music. According to his mood or atmosphere sought, he may drive at any time his music listening experience guided by his intuition.
Ethnographic studies (*) have shown that people choose music peaces according to their mood or mood change expectation. Musicovery relied on this principle to build an effective relationship between music and emotion.
This mood matrix (from “Dark” to “Positive” on X-axis and from “Calm” to “Energetic” on Y-axis) is unique because it is the only one to propose a relationship between music and mood in a manner as ergonomic and attractive (with continuous and progressive axes).
