Music is an important part of our lives. People inevitably associate memories with a song or with a playlist. Through various research, music has proven to be an integral factor that makes retention and retrieval of ideas and emotions possible even after a long time.
“Music engages different parts of our brain—emotional, physical, and cognitive—all at once and it is a part of how we motivate ourselves on a daily basis,” said Spotify Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Team Lead, Shows and Editorial, Eve Tan. “Our musical journey is highly personal and our taste and preferences reflect a lot about who we are, what we are doing, and how we feel in any given moment.”
She added, “Spotify users have real lives; they are focused on health, schedules, work, money, relationships. With proper curation, music can enhance or change moods. With a team that is spread throughout the world—a dedicated team of global curators, including genre leads, senior editors, and editors—Spotify contributes to diversity and cultural sharing of music and trends to deliver the greatest personal music experience to anyone, anywhere.”
