TEDx Music at TEDxHGSE
“Henry Wadsworth Longfellow called music a universal language. I think he was correct; however, there’s one challenge in today’s exponential innovation age of music: most of us have a very small vocabulary. There’s so much music happening all over the world! We hope that the TEDx Music Project will be a place where people can discover and learn how to burst that filter bubble of what we “know” music to be.”
The TEDx Music Project shares music from TEDx events all over the world. I was invited to share this project at Harvard’s TEDxHGSE. During this talk, I shared a glimpse into the future of the TEDx Music Project, including: embedding performances on a map; using echnest’s api to algorithmically generate playlists and sharing the music across streaming platforms like Spotify and Pandora.
A special TEDxHGSE playlist is available here.
