Mood Music

Are music streaming behaviours associated with wellbeing, and are they acceptable to use?

We were awarded a seedcorn grant by the Jean Golding Institute to investigate whether we can use data from Spotify as a signal of wellbeing. This will involve an ecological momentary assessement study to collect data from a group of participants, as well as qualitative focus groups to explore ethics and study design.

This project involves two main pieces of software. The first is a Twilio application to deliver the EMA questionnaires, and a Django app to administer the study.
