Spotify’s Emoqual plugin & app.

sports and music

A plugin for Spotify that enable you to label music with emotions and sentiments of how you perceive them. While doing so, it gets to learn what you love/hate, what makes you relax/productive, etc Qualify your music with emotions. What excites, what makes you calm down?

The Emoqual app uses this information to make you progress faster in any training program through the power of music. The training program pushes you forward but adapts both the music and program on the fly based on your specific situation and heartbeat. This can be used for all kinds of sports, but athletics, running and cycling seem the most obvious to me.

Elevator Music Video Clip.

Dancing in elevator

I was standing in the elevator towards the floor where I worked and I was singing, well humming in it. I thought immediately this would make a great music video. Both for singer-songwriters but also for bands. The scenario would be really straight-forward and simple. Someone walk in and holds still in front of the elevator. (S)He presses the button for the lift to arrive. (S)He looks around and sees something mixed with shots of the elevator shaft and what (s)he sees. The elevator arrives and (s)he steps in. There is no-one else in it. (S)He presses the top floor and starts wiggling, humming, singing, moving, dancing. It’s a long way and the only way is up. (S)He reaches the top floor, door opens, and the last repeat of the refrain or lyrics are sung well going outside, admiring a view on solitude, a city, a deserted place while walking the outro of the song.

For a traditional popsong, a ballad, an intimate hip hop or any other song this could work.

Three programmable shortcut key buttons on every keyboard.

keyboard ball

I often listen to music during work and I equally often get disturbed by my co-workers… When they do interrupt me in my work, I mute all sound in my headphone to focus on their questions (or suggestions) but I only realise much later that I didn’t pauze the music (album) I was listening to. I have to go back to the music player and guess where I left off listening to start over my listening session. Therefor, a physical ‘pauze and mute’ button in my keyboard would be awesome. Or I could just press both the pauze and mute button…

But than again… I would love the idea that every keyboard in the world has 3 white label keys that are programmable. So I want this pauze and mute shortcut? I ‘program’ it as such. Other people could have make their shortcuts do other stuff, such as ‘open facebook in chrome’ or ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ shortcuts or whatever one would want…

Pandemic Music Runner. Runkeeper meets Pandora. #oipd

Every couple of years I start running but once I’m up to speed, I need to stop because of painful knees and joints. What I like most was running with music in my ears. I also noticed that some of music made me run faster.

Pandemic Music Runner is a plug-in, add-on for any sports GPS tracker (Nike+, Runkeeper, …) that analysis your performance in relation to the music you’re listening to (such as Pandora, Shazam, …).

I believe that music in training improves more rapidly sport performances. Based on one’s personal music taste and past training analysis, new adapted training programs rolls out of the app. By offering it to the masses – the giant amount of data that gets collected can be analyzed and gives the opportunity to grow it into a professional sport consultancy service.

Buskers Delight. #oipd

Co-creation in musicThe idea is virtual co-creation in music making: Chat Roulette publishing of music for a hypothetical audience.

Buskers Delight offers a platform where composers and musicians can meet and jam with each other. The platform records the remote recording sessions and publishes it live via streaming. People can tune in the streams and follow, comment, listen and enjoy genuine jam sessions. The musicians and composers stay in charge of their production rights.

The idea came in Paris when I saw buskers meeting who were really good musicians individually but the real magic happened when they started jamming together.

This concept is about the facilitation of music by music creators for real music lovers. Something you would really love to do, right (Bart Becks)? 😉

From student to professional life: my theory of grabbing opportunities.

In fact, it’s a practical approach. Let me try to explain this simply; I’ve always been some kind of creative entrepreneur. Without much hesitation, but a lot of youngful enthusiasm I threw myself in trying to do all kinds and sometimes silly stuff. It all started with radio…
