Music Map is a tool for music lovers: the ones who browse record stores for fun and build their identities with their music collections. With Music Map, I wanted to immerse these users in their own musical universes by creating an experience that feels more involved than receiving a playlist once a week.
The idea is to leverage a user's Spotify listening data to generate a unique musical identity map. The goal of this map is to not only clearly show users what music they listen to, but also expose them to the vast amount of music they have yet to discover and to motivate them to explore.
The goal with this design concept is to recreate the thrill and satisfaction of the "manual" search for new music, while utilizing Spotify's data to help guide the process. Think of it as record shopping with your musically knowledgeable friend.
