Discussion

It is also very easy to use plus you are not required to log in or register. Just visit the web app’s homepage and that’s it. You’re all set to discover and listen to any song or music that falls under a specific genre.

With Every Noise at Once, you have two ways to search for songs that you wish to listen to. First, there’s the “Scan” mode which basically lists down all music genres like a tag cloud. In this mode, you just need to click a genre that you want and the songs will automatically play on your computer. Just click the genre again to stop the music. It’s as easy as that.

Second, there’s the “List” mode which basically lists down almost all kinds of music genre. If you click on a genre, you’ll also see its full list of sub-genres so just choose the sub-genre that you like and the song playlist will automatically load. The good thing about this web app is that all of its songs are hosted on Spotify. If you want, you can also opt to narrow down your search by finding an artist that you like.

Anyways, Every Noise at Once also has its own share of downsides.

In addition, you might be having trouble when it comes to loading the song playlists especially if you are not a registered Spotify user. On the brighter side, Spotify is free so all you need is to create an account there and you’re all set to listen to your favorite songs. It should also be noted that this web app lacks offline support.

    Hi! Thanks for the write-up! A few notes, though:

    – You CAN see an alphabetized list of genres. Go to the list mode and click on “sort by”: “name”. http://everynoise.com/everynoise1d.cgi?vector=name&scope=all

    – You can use your browser’s normal Find function to search for genres by name. Just hit Control-F and type whatever you want to find.

    – Although you can’t customize THESE Spotify playlists, you can make new Spotify playlists of your own and copy any subset or combination of tracks from these playlists to your own.
