Kilometers of emotions on board Audi
The global automobile manufacturer Audi and Carlos Jean with the collaboration of the Spanish singer Juan Zelada, have developed a new musical and technological project.
This innovative project consists of the creation of a song based on the emotions of random people while listening to small parts of a melody.
Thus, Jean and Zelada, on board Audi, have been travelling around Spain with the aim of developing a song “with people’s smiles”, as the co-creator of the experiment called ‘The Sounds of Emotions’ stand out.
And what better way to accomplish this project than using ‘Sociograph’ technology?
The creative group in charge of this innovative and interesting project got in touch with Sociograph, in order to be able to test each “emotion and smile” of Juan Zelada’s improvised song.
So from León to Málaga, technology and feelings have crossed the Iberian Peninsula exploring a new way to create a single: with the heart, with the emotions and with the most significant expression of happiness: people’s smile.

Thus, after residents and tourists attended the interesting stands within such trade fair, they had access to the delights cooked in food trucks.
Spanish tapas were the main course of the menu, but something was missed: know the favorite food truck by the public. For this reason, Sociograph called on random attendees to be connected to ‘sociograph’ technology and determine the favorite tapa among the different food trucks.
Therefore a group of 30 participants tasted the different gastronomic delights with the aim of becoming jury by monitoring their attentional levels and emotions reactions and award the one with the highest levels of these two variables.
Mediaset: Ad Hoc Fiction
The services of Sociograph have been requested by Mediaset España to implement a new development strategy for its media content with the aim of keeping its leadership on the TV programming.

All this allows determining the plots and characters which arouse more sympathy on the audience and the other way round what unquestionably allows improving the final content.

It was a cold November day at the capital of Spain, Madrid, although the weather did not affect the 30 participants of the experiment, between fans and professionals, who in the enchanting atmosphere of “Mama Frambiose”, had the opportunity of enjoying this unique experience: be a neuroscientific jury of one of the most successful voices on today’s Spanish music scene.
Thus, the participants, connected to Sociograph’s wristbands, have enjoyed two different songs “Delay” and “Al otro lado del mar”. This latter, finally, was the song which arose more emotion and attention among the participants. “The experiment was amazing, and the most important is that, we already have the single” pointed out Muñoz, delighted with the result of the experiment and impressed with the technology.
“Concert of Emotions”
Sociograph has put on a groundbreaking event in Miguel Delibes Cultural Centre, in Valladolid. Such event called “Concert of Emotions‘ had the participation of Miguel Angel Recio, who left his imagination fly and improvised melodies in this special agora, full to the brim.
A group of visually impaired people became part of the participants in such Cultural Center, being connected to ‘Sociograph’ technology with the aim of determining how much emotion arouses famous musical pieces in connection to the musical improvisation as Recio stood out.
Thus, ‘sociograph’ technology recorded the attentional levels and emotions reactions of the participants while listening to the concert. After analyzing the data, it was found that the emotional reactions and attentional levels were higher during the second part whereas improvisation took place. Further, those who have visual disability presented higher levels and reactions than those who did not.
These results have allowed us to wonder whether visual stimuli may influence on our perception when listening to music.

At any single moment of the narrative, the guest got into a pool while playing the music under study at background.
About 40 people participated in this study tested with ‘Sociograph’ technology, which showed that the excitement of participants arose when the protagonist got into the pool while playing the music at background.
DoubleYou gave to Sociograph, S.L. the opportunity to attend Fitur (International Tourism Fair) and collaborate with Turespaña by applying marketing science within the tourism sector.
“El Destinómetro” a creative idea of DoubleYou consisting of an interactive activity in which participants connected to ‘Sociograph’ technology while watching a sequence of images of different Spanish touristic destinations. Then, it was determined which tourist destination was the ideal one for each participant though the measurement of the emotional reactions.
Certainly, this has been one of the most rewarding works for the company, since Spanish royals King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia were there m and they did not hesitate to be part of this unforgettable experience experiment as well as connecting to ‘Sociograph’ technology.
