10 years ago two friends and I attended SF Music Hack day and we created a hack in under 24 hours that allowed users to browse music by color via the predominant colors of the cover art. It was meant to be a bad joke, like judging a book by its cover. We failed to create a joke, but inadvertently created something really fun.
It was originally created for Rdio, which of course died soon thereafter. Then I moved it to a Spotify app, and then Spotify apps were shut down shortly thereafter. Then it languished for years.
About two weeks ago on a random bank holiday, I resurrected the project. With the help of @mr_monkey, @amCap1712 and @akshaaatt we spent the next few days hacking on this project and tidying up the various ends. Thanks for helping!
And here it is: HueSound – pick a color on the color wheel and wait for the art to appear. Pick a cover and start listening. Don’t like it? Pick another cover or another color!
