Description

Filed in Music.

Ever been at a hair dresser or cafe and wished you could have a say in the music? Ambience makes it easy for venues to play background music - you simply register with a venue name and email, and we take care of the rest.

People visiting can login via facebook to provide their musical likes, which we'll automatically match, or simply request their favourite artists.

Behind the scenes, ambience takes care of finding songs and putting them on for users.

NOTE: Our matching is pretty basic at the moment - you may notice songs aren't always correct. We try our best.
