Berlin, Germany – December 20, 2018 –Endel– the unrivaled, cross-platform audio ecosystem that creates personalized, algorithm-powered adaptive environments that can improve health, well-being, and mood – is releasing a new update with a special Winter Mode soundscape.
Available in the Apple App Store, Endel generates special winter soundscapes with the easing sounds of a fireplace, dreamy piano, soothing bells, somnolent wind whistling, and solemn choir. The soundscapes are 100% free from cheesy jingle bell sounds and trite holiday hits. The ecosystem’s first “social” mode also enables listening through speakers to help make the holidays happy for a crowd. The sound is completely generative and affected by the time of day. Other Modes of Endel — Sleep, Focus and Relax — can be crucial for helping people unwind and focus, not only during the stressful holiday season but also throughout the winter.
Leveraging the neuroscience behind how sounds reduce stress and anxiety while impacting brain activity and physical well-being, the cross-platform Endel audio ecosystem uses sound to align a listener’s mind and body to any task or goal. The technology is algorithm-powered and changes on the fly depending on various inputs, like time, location, weather, and heart rate and incorporates circadian rhythms, the pentatonic scale, and sound masking.
“We are excited to bring more relaxation and mental well-being to the winter season,” says Oleg Stavitsky, Founder and CEO of Endel. “The holidays particularly can be very stressful, but now with our special Winter Mode, Endel can help relieve the anxiety and bring back the joy and sense of presence that make this time of year special.”
Endel is a Techstars Music’18 company, with investors including Amazon Alexa Fund, Avex Inc., Major Lazer’s Jillionaire, Plus 8 Equity Partners, Kima Ventures, Impulse Ventures, and world-famous DJ La Fleur. Endel is available at the Apple App Store, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/endel-focus-relax-and-sleep/id1346247457. For more information, please visit http://endel.io.
Working on the basis that sound has a direct impact on our wellbeing and affects our heart rate, blood pressure, and state of mind, Endel generates real-time personalized sound environments to enhance focus, relaxation, and sleep. The audio ecosystem creates algorithm-powered, personalized soundscapes that help calm the mind, minimize daily distractions, and prevent brain fatigue. After choosing one of several sound modes — Relax, Focus, Sleep, and On-the-Go, for example — the cross-platform ecosystem creates a unique soothing and physiologically natural soundscape, which adapts real-time to a number of personal inputs like location, time zone, weather, and heart rate. Additionally, the sound engine is designed to be integrated into various technologies and public infrastructures such as airports or hotels, as well as office and co-working spaces. Endel is the brainchild of a Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists who have worked together on various mobile products – including the award-winning kids’ app series, BUBL.
