Streamed music rarely matches the context, and thus music’s potential for social and individual well-being remains underutilized. Listener interaction is limited to playlist selection and there is no connection with the real world and the music.
Holonic Systems uses spatial and physical computing to transform real-world data into musical information. Their musical end-to-end solution is based on real-time synthesis of data, such as movement and GIS information, which is then converted into musical information that matches the users’ environment. End users create music passively, in real time, just by going about their daily activities. No screen interaction is required.
Holonic Systems adaptive music applications can be used by consumers, professionals and corporate customers to enhance and augment mobility, improve commuting and retail experiences, and enhance events with auditory interactions. Their MVP app, Holon, reached # 5 in several countries within the (Health & Fitness category).
