This platform has understood that not all music is valid when it comes to staying in a work or academic environment. In those situations, we need a soundtrack that relaxes us, lowers our heart rate, and allows us to focus more. In addition, it offers a highly personalized experience depending on the utility that we want to give it.
An app to improve concentration
This app has a purpose, to make our mind relax with AI-based music and that seeks to improve our ability to concentrate and even our sleep habit. This application develops a whole system capable of generating music that will be synchronized with our brain audio, that is, it will be in accordance with the waves that perceive the audio from our brain. To do this, Brian.fm launches a series of complexities that we could summarize as the interaction of various instruments and musical notes with each other to create this difficult synchronicity.
For this reason, nothing is left to chance at Brain.fm, a project that seeks to produce a non-invasive way of offering digital therapy and improve our mental performance with music. In fact, the service is working with neuroscientists and engineers specialized in neurophysiology, nanotechnology and biomedical devices to try to validate its concepts. This process produces an Emerging Artificial Intelligence that is nothing more than the result of the combination of several AI methods that lead the devices to learn automatically and offer their own answers.
In any case, if the music proposed by artificial intelligence does not convince us, it can always be changed. The site also has a section to explore different situations with special sounds. Cinematic, electronic music, night or beach sounds, rain, forest noises, etc. In addition, it has sections that explain how to use Brain.fm to relax, focus or sleep. It is a pity that the entire interface is in English, which does not make it impossible to use it, but it does make it difficult.
How Brain.fm works on Android
When opening the application, we can choose between the three categories that it presents according to our needs: Focus, Relaxation or Sleep. Under each category we will see a brief description of what we will achieve by listening to the music prepared for each one of them.
When we get to that screen, we must choose what we have downloaded this app for. Within these three categories, there are different utilities. Music for Focus helps in work, study, creative work, and other activities. Music for Relaxation helps with breaks and meditation. And finally, the music for Sleep helps in naps or sleeping at night.
With everything already configured, we move on to music playback. It is the central function of the platform, and it shows. The player is very complete and customizable, with filters by genres, possibility of changing to another track or regulate the intensity of the effects depending on our neuronal synchronization, if it is lower or higher. All the themes can be found in the ‘Explore’ section, in addition to having our own library, where the music listened to is found.
To make music more effective at what you want to achieve, the creators of Brain.fm recommend listen to music before doing the activity. For example, listening to music to focus the mind before starting to study.
A useful service, but at a price
