Diurnal listening

When do you listen to what?

Which type of music do you listen to at different times during the day? At the Center for Music in the Brain we've analysed billions of tracks and found that musical features such as the tempo and danceability change during the day. You can read about our findings in our paper.

Here you can test what we think about your playlists! We'll analyse them, and tell you which time of the day we think your playlist is best suited for:


06:00 to 12:00


12:00 to 20:00


20:00 to 23:00


23:00 to 04:00


04:00 to 06:00

To participate you log in through Spotify. We ask permission to view your playlists so you can choose which of your playlists to analyse.

We collect only anonymised data. If you participate you agree to let us use the data for research purposes. For more information press here.
