MISSION

At Musictivity, we have combined this with age-old music techniques to keep your brain healthy and refreshed as you work extensively to be more productive. These involve a complex series of steps, as can be seen below.

 
A NUANCED SCIENCE
Our studies indicate that different music is best suited for focusing on different activities. 
01
While working, we use specific regions of our brain for different activities, leaving a large part of it generally unused and open to distraction.
02
Music, on the other hand, keeps most or all of the brain engaged and can help drown out distracting or sudden noises
03
By using music, we can help keep the brain engaged and working, and at the same time, increase dopamine, or the "motivation" hormone, which can act as a stress-blocker and reduce cortisol, the "stress hormone"
When we align activities with appropriate music and the circadian rhythm, our brains focus faster with more ease, and become more productive
04
05
Our data centers understand and segregate music from your prefered providers into different groups based on frequencies, genres, components and play history, which will then be played for a specific work activity, or be used to find alternatives that will work better
We study our users' listening behavior, their brainwaves and heartbeats while focusing, to actively update the algorithms that prepare every listener's custom work-music session, and make productivity better for the brain in the long run.
