Hi music fans!!

We are twicc team based in Tokyo. We love music and tech, so it was natural that we participated in Music Hack Day Tokyo 2014 at Harajuku, as creators. Music Hack Day is an exciting hackathon where creators conceptualize, create and present their projects related to music (see sonarplusd.com’s article). It was memorable that Music Hack Day was held in Japan for the first time. In the result of our presentation, Spotify team favorited our hack (also check Spotify Developer Blog).

 

twicc connects communication with music

Our project is named “twicc” ([twík]). twicc is an iPhone app, which plays Spotify music matched with tweets in user’s Twitter timeline. twicc analyzes the text of tweet, and call out music from Spotify. Its matching of text and music realizes music discovery with fun and surprise. If your friend tweeted about EDM, you may find Calvin Harris’ sound on twicc. Or else, if your following celebrity tweeted about NBA, you may come across Shaquille O’Neal’s track.

On twicc, your daily communication (on Twitter) brings music. We hope that twicc makes relationships between people and music more easygoing.

 

twicc will be released this summer

After the hack day, we’ve kept on developing and brushing up twicc. Soon it will debut in the App Store. Wait for several days with your Twitter & Spotify premium account!!
