THE MUSIC TRACK
Ask me anything
I recently read a proposal that had been submitted for acquisition about the science of tracking. Turns out that there is a large segment of the population who keep detailed “tracking” notes on everything in their lives; what they eat, physical activity, moods… Scientists, psychologist, doctors and more find these concentrated groupings of “things” and events can predict much about the future, whether it be one’s health, prosperity, and/or mental stability.
I don’t think we got that book, and I wasn’t blown away by the concept. It just didn’t really seem NEW. But since reading it, I’ve been thinking a lot about the music I listen to from day to day, and how those on-the-fly choices seem to augur what kind of day (or night) I’ll have.
Thus begins my music-forecasting project. I’ll try and record each day what I listen to during my morning commute and my return home. If I put something on once home, I’ll list that. And weekends! Aaah that will be a more robust listing. I want to see if I can come up with some hypotheses, maybe “80’s alternative gets me down” or “Sic Alps make me better in meetings…”
Whatever, should be fun. For me, at least.
