It's My First Day
Well, that's not entirely true. ChatTrak has been in the works for a while now in planning, design, development, and testing. Though it's not our first day we're excited to open up this new experience with audio to the world.
ChatTrak was an idea that came to me over lunch. I sat at my computer with headphones on ready to listen to a new album I bought. I decided to share my thoughts as I listened via social media since I didn't have anything else to occupy me aside from my food. It was a great way for me to critically process what I heard and, still today, better remember the impressions and emotions I had each subsequent time I hear tracks from that album. But, something was missing.
There was no way for me, or anyone really, to go back and see the thoughts I jotted down in the context of the music. From there my mind began spinning and I envisioned the ChatTrak player wherein comments and impressions people post float by as a track plays. This allows artists, authors, podcasters, orators, educators, and listeners to add context and insight to the tracks that normally just come and go.
Thanks so much for checking out ChatTrak! There's plenty more to come but please feel free to upload your tracks, comment on yours or others, and let me know if you have any questions or feedback at any time.
