With so much music at our fingertips these days, finding the right track to suit your mood can take time. But what if you could instantly create a track to suit your mood instead?
Grammy-nominated musician and visual artist j.viewz is making it possible with a new video for his song #AlmostForgot, which he’s created in collaboration with digital creative agency Hello Monday. (Sound spot, Tim.)
All you need is the free app on your smartphone, and a pulse. When you place your finger over the back camera, the app detects slight changes in your fingertips, which tells the app about your heart rate. You heart rate then becomes the metronome, setting the tempo for the song and visuals.
So if you’re feeling mellow, you’ll get a slow song and slow animations. If you’re excited and active, the song becomes more upbeat and the animations more energetic.
The right track is still at your fingertips, just in a different way.
