Thounds

Thounds is a “social recorder” that helps people capture their musical inspirations.

Ideas don’t only come from musicians: everyone gets musical inspirations and Thounds helps catch them. Whether you are a musician or just a music lover, you can contribute to a new track and enjoy it with your friends and with many others around the world.

How it works

The Process

Who will use this platform?
This was the first question I had to answer.
So I started to imagine users’ profiles…

I spent some weeks drawing flow charts and design the user’s experience. Here are some of these sketches. The aim of the project is to keep the recording part and also all the interaction between users and samples really simple, but these connections need a precise structure.
