Sountracks For Your eBooks
Here’s an idea that might interest all you avid eBook readers. How would you like a soundtrack to play while you read your latest novel? Booktracks has a proprietary technology that combines music, sound effects and ambient sound that is automatically paced to an individual’s reading speed.
They have a way of tracking your reading speed. Whaaa? Yes, check out the video here.
“Booktrack represents a new chapter in the evolution of storytelling, and an industry “first” in publishing, by creating synchronized soundtracks for e-books that dramatically boost the reader’s imagination and engagement.”
Just like I find it hard to write while there is a lot of noise around me, I enjoy reading in a quiet environment. However, one can’t always make that happen – especially on public transport, for example. Booktracks is targeting the senses in order to put you in a little sound bubble -that immerses you in the world of your book. Sensory Appeal™ is all about taking aim the senses. This wave has ideas that involve textures, colors, tastes and sounds. The Human Truth™ is: “I want a new sensation.”™ Booktracks and their “Hi Def immersive experience” is a great example of this… one I’d love to try.
