Imagine being able to morph any song in your library to play at the speed you’re going; moving together, synced as one. Imagine no more! Weav Music is here for you.
Weav Music is a new interactive music mixing platform developed by Cute Little Apps and created by Elomida Visviki and Lars Rasmussen (previous co-creator of Google Maps, Google Wave, and Facebook’s ex director of engineering).
As the listener, you can adjust the tempo of a song without warping the track through Weav. How is this done? Musicians who use Weav have to record different parts of their songs at different speeds. Like that, anyone can change the BPM of the song while Weav automatically blends the sounds together with a smooth transition, dismissing the possibility of a botched playlist.
Weav will also be able to respond to your heartbeat and adjust your music speed to your activities. The more active or hyped up you seem to be, the more Weave will speed up the BPM of the song to try and match your energy. The company is interested in receiving feedback from the artists and are hoping this new technology “can help fund the production of music”.
Weav is still in beta so there isn’t a set date for its release, but it’s expected to be available in “a few weeks”. A few tracks have already been recorded by several artists to demonstrate how it works. They’re also taking requests from any other musicians who want to participate in the beta after signing up.
Rasmussen stated, “We believe that as our lives become increasingly digital, and as our increasingly powerful mobile devices play greater and greater roles in our lives, having a song that can change and adapt — in real time — to what you are doing will become increasingly important. And delightful. This is why we built Weav. “We couldn’t agree more with you, Lars, and we’re thrilled to see how this new technology will change the game of interactive apps in this fast-paced, ever-changing digital era we’re living in.
