EventSound Hack Creates Party Playlists For Facebook Friends
The app analyzes multiple music collections to generate a selection with something for everyone.
EventSound is a hack developed by the co-founders of Zawatt at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon, which lets people create playlists for their Facebook events based on the music collections of the attendees.
The Facebook app analyzes the musical tastes of the people who are going to the party and generates the perfect playlist with optimized tracks from everyone’s libraries. So party-goers can enjoy the event while the hands-free music system plays songs they are sure to enjoy.
EventSound uses technology from the Echo Nest and an interest graph from Facebook. The hack won the Echo Nest API Custom Contest award and is currently in closed alpha.
