If like me you create online experiences for living and you love music, you should have a play with this.

When it comes to music, there are lots of services where you can search, browse and discover new sound. Curation is more than ever a key need for people and interaction enables a more personalised experience – just have a think of how you use features like: similar artists, latest music, music categories, discovery by mood…

Some online services have great user experience others less – some reframe experiences around key needs, others impress by designing for hidden, unveiled desires. But what I really enjoy is when things are done in a surprising, fresh and new way - that is clearly the case with Marmoset website.

Before I share some stuff I liked about it; let me give you a bit of context. Marmoset is a music agency – they curate and sell music for visual stories. In other words sound for movies.

My overall impression of the website is clearly positive: clean, easy and simple. But my goal here is not to share my general point-of-view of it; instead I am going to focus on a specific section of the site: the browsing section. For a company that aims to sell music for video it’s all about finding and matching the right sound with the right images and I really believe they nail it.

The website browsing experience and the way content is presented makes so simple to match a sound narrative to a visual narrative and I certainly helps users to imagine how sound and image can be combined into a unique and strong peace of art.

Some browsing features in focus:

Define your mood by making your story “mashup”. Just love the idea of serving music as a result form the connected elements of a story.

image

Browse music visually. This may be a bit geeky but I really enjoy the ability to filter results by arc of a story it offers a simple visualisation graph that enables users to quickly get a quick picture of a song. Every story has a beginning, middle and an end – and so does music.

image

Filter music by length; seems quite simple but not very common. Also very simple users have to drag a slider to the desired length of a track.

image

And finally beyond the usual filtering options we find on other music services: type, genres, years etc. Here we also have the option to filter by instrument type, vocals and energy type.

Have a try here. Play with it, add your filters and enjoy your discovery.
