This week I was fortunate enough to work with my ol' buddy Wes at the LATimes about how music (and specifically your playlist) can influence your mood. Initially, i approached this all wrong - giving more attention to music over playlist to convey a sense of calm - I focused on things associated with music, like raising your lighter for an encore, or playing a record.
However, Wes seems to have infinite patience for me missing the mark. He suggested relooking at my ideas, but incorporating the idea of a playlist - and this could be done easily by showing the type of mobile device we carry our music on. There were a variety of ways i could show an ipod type device - and shows its effect of peoples mood, thoughts and relaxation. After a few more attempts we had more than enough good ideas, and decided to show our 3 favorites together in a fun sort of triptych.
music effect of your thoughts, your peace of mind, and your body.
