Music Game With a Purpose

Research groups at Utrecht University and University of Amsterdam are proud to announce the release of Hooked!, an app made to gather music listening data for MIR and music cognition research. Hooked! is a free ‘game-with-a-purpose’ for iOS in which you are asked to recognize fragments from a set of around 2000 popular records. The faster you recognize the song, the more points you get.

Get the app here: itunes.apple.com/us/app/hooked!/id656683131?mt=8

Many players will be needed to get all of our data annotated, so feel free to distribute. Enjoy listening and playing!

Hooked! was developed by Dimitrios Bountouridis, Jan Van Balen, Frans Wiering and Remco Veltkamp at Utrecht University and Ashley Burgoyne and Henkjan Honing at the University of Amsterdam.
