PocketSOMPlayer -
Intuitive Access to Music on mobile devices

The user's demand for the always accessible portable music archive calls for novel ways of access to music. There is a need for new techniques and interfaces, freeing us from burdensome selection of tracks, allowing us to explore music spaces. The PocketSOMPlayer brings music maps, which automatically organize music archives according to acoustic similarity, to mobile devices and thus allows very quick selection of a specific taste of music.


PocketSOM on PDA Phone

The PocketSOM implementation for the BenQ P50 is based on ewe, a java-like vm for Windows CE devices. It is also known as eweSOM.

The generated playlists can be stored as m3u-playlists or directly be sent to a VLC-Player containing an http-interface.

This version supports multiple (up to four) paths generating the playlist, which can be edited afterwards.

a playlist containing multiple paths On the resulting playlist, songs along the paths are chosen. You can edit the playlist before sending it to a VLC-server or saving it to a m3u-file using the Play-button. The playlist-file can afterwards be replayed using an external player on the device.
