Muse is a final project I built for a half-credit Ruby class I took in spring 2017. Muse makes music discovery personal - instead of being fed new music by algorithms, you get songs recommended to you by real people.
If you're like me, you connect music to memories. I can remember everything about the first time I heard a song called Wake Forest - the smell of the grass, the cool air, the sound of the crowd, and the people I was with. I built Muse because I wanted to share that story and those memories with other people. My dream for Muse was a community of thoughtful story-swapping, with each story connected to a song.
I never polished it after the class ended, but an iOS version could be in the works.
You can see Muse in action here (it will take a minute to load - the server will be asleep). You can also view the code on gitHub.
Have a cool idea? Have comments about my work? I'd love to hear about it - drop your info below to get in touch.
