Kindness



The process was simple, choose a track to play and write down the name. After a week, I found the lyrics for each song and the metadata (genre, release date and track length). The data I decided to collect was personal yet public.

Songs on Spotify have always been classified (through various categories), my aim was to remove the pixels, display all the lyrics at once and summarize my week. I expected there to be a lot of "sad" songs but occasionally, there was an upbeat tune that made me smile or dance around. With a focus on the lyrics, I was able to create a publication that folded out to reveal the coping mechanism. I realized that without the melody or the beat, the songs evolved into poetry - developing a new sense of rhythm and pace. As I dove deeper into it, specific lyrics stood out to me and I started bolding them.
