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.

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.
