ECHO is an app and venue proposition that allows visitors to attend shows, discover new music, and interact with people of similar musical interests. It incorporates a physical as well as digital space.
The problem: Music discovery occurs primarily between peers, and has been widely facilitated digitally through apps such as spotify, iTunes etc. Music discovery through physical spaces (live music) has been compromised as a result.
The solution: An app that initiates a social experience digitally, but executes itself in a physical space. ECHO functions in a three tiered live music venue, that hosts artists of different genres on seperate floors. The app is an extension of this venue, and displays current and upcoming shows, a punch card point system, and connection feature that 'matches' visitors with similar music taste.
