What is the FUSES Model?
FUSES stands for Forceful, Urban, Sophisticated, Earthy and Smooth. Your music traits cross music genres. For example. if one of your traits is “forceful”, you might like AC/DC’s "Back in Black," Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, and Puff Daddy’s "Victory." Our research team has carefully chosen a small number of musical prototypes or “probes” that research has shown can help to better understand a given individual’s musical tastes. The prototypes are the result of more than 10 years of research using tens of thousands of respondents, both on the internet and in laboratory settings.
What’s special about Music Patterns?
Signal Patterns offers a completely new and different service that offers true social recommendation based on the "psychological perception" of music. User profiles are not based directly on listening preferences but instead they are statistical models representing each user’s music personality, rather than their favorite genres or bands.
