Smule has become one of the most prominent developers of music creation apps for iOS and Android, but its newest project is more experimental. It’s called Smuush, and was created as part of a two-day hackathon run by the US-based startup. “Smuush is a new way of visualizing the world connecting through music in about the most authentic way possible. It captures the exact moments when people are experiencing a song and combines all these moments together into a music video,” explained developer Turner Kirk. “It uses Vine as an endless and constantly updating repository of 6 second video clips that are easily searchable by hashtag, and Smule technology as the thread that ties them together in a musical and, at times, culturally relevant way.” In other words, people feed in an MP3 of a song and a related hashtag on Vine (#billiejean for example) then Smuush stitches Vine videos together, synchronising their audio with the song. The process takes around two minutes, although it’s unclear when or whether Smuush will be released for public use. Copyright implications? We’ll leave that to the lawyers.
