past.fm is a tangible interface, rooted in how people associate particular songs with specific time-periods of their lives. Using a token, users can access their listening history and scrub through a timeline of their favourite music.
The token accesses this data through the user’s last.fm account which “scrobbles” music services/applications such as Spotify/iTunes, tracking their listening history. Tokens can also connect to curated genre histories or artist discographies, allowing users to learn about the evolution of music over time.
