#hookedonmusic Reloaded

Following the on-going success of #HookedOnMusic – which identified the nation’s catchiest song of all time as The Spice Girls ‘Wanna Be’ – the online game and scientific experiment which has been played more than 2 million times – returns better than ever and with some cutting-edge new tricks.

Created for the Museum of Science and Industry Manchester by Dr Ashley Burgoyne and The Reading Room, the #HookedOnMusic experiment features adaptive technology which gets to know the gamer’s musical memory and adapts to serve up songs which they will know.

The aim of this new version is to develop the game into a therapeutic tool that a caregiver would be able to use with an Alzheimer’s patient in a long-term care facility to find the music that will be most beneficial to that particular patient.

Give the game a go! You can play it here: http://www.hookedonmusic.org.uk
