We all know the expression. And we think we know what it means. But do we?
People have always responded to music. Not just emotionally, but biologically. Yet, we are only now discovering that music may be capable of much more.
Research has shown that music has a profound effect on the brain, triggering neural networks related to movement, cognition, learning, memory and emotion. We know it can help with things like pain, fatigue, anxiety and sleeplessness.
There are intriguing examples of how music can improve cognition after dementia or a stroke. It can help some with autism break through verbally or socially, or aid patients with Parkinson’s to regulate their gait.
What scientists, clinicians, musicians and engineers want to understand is how. How does music do that? And how much more can music do? If music can reach us physically, and we can find a way of decoding what music does, could we use music to improve health?
We believe it can. And that’s why we’ve started The Sync Project.
We have developed a platform to scientifically measure and harness music to improve health.
Our platform maps music characteristics to real-time biometrics gathered from an exploding variety of sensors. We hope to understand and decode the personalized therapeutic effect of music.
To achieve our vision, we created The Sync Project as a global collaboration with some of the most passionate and visionary minds in science, music, health and technology. We need scientists, music lovers, engineers, musicians, patients and patient advocacy groups, everyone, to take part in this ambitious project. Only together can we decode music for health. In time, we hope this can help the lives of millions.
That’s the power of music. The power of science. The power of people. In Sync.
Our exploits have been covered by:
We strive to collaborate with forward-thinking scientists, technologists, device companies, clinicians, patients, advocacy groups, musicians and music lovers.
Scientists, let’s talk about how we can partner and empower you to conduct large-scale studies in your area of interest.
Musicians and music companies, let’s explore how your craft and services can benefit health.
Device makers, let’s discuss how to work together so your products can enable medical research and reach millions of consumers.
Patients and advocacy groups, connect with us to explore how music can benefit your lives and stay updated on our research studies.
Everyone, let’s learn how music affects you and can improve your life and be the first to get our product.
What? Thank you? Yes, thank you. It’s something we feel doesn't get said enough. Thank you for your interest in The Sync Project, for taking the time to learn about us, for partnering with us, for sharing your passion and your story, and for telling us how we can improve. Without you we could not fulfill our vision. So thank you from each and every one of us.
