Lenovo Sonic Balm

According to a recent study commissioned in the U.S. and UK by Spotify, the largest barrier to being productive is internal stimuli—things like stress, mood, and level of tiredness. Roughly 80% of respondents said listening to something helps them focus, tune out distractions, and create their own space.

Music triggers the release of Dopamine, the chemical that is released in a part of the brain that makes you feel good. Using the science of Navarasas (the nine fundamental human emotions) and in collaboration with BrandMusiq, Lenovo has created a series of compositions to counteract these negative emotions and make the experience of feeling emotionally safe and positive come alive.

Inspired by music therapy, the ‘MusicBalm’ platform will help curate playlists of healing music to provide ‘quick comfort’ to listeners and help them bring positive emotions like love and gratitude to life.

Lenovo India’s heart-warming campaign, Music Balm in collaboration with BrandMusiq, has won under the Audio Marketing category of the International Sound Awards (ISA) Better Sound Awards 2022. ISA promotes innovative, smart, and useful sound projects, products, and services that contribute to the motto: Make The World Sound Better.

Speaking on the win, Chandrika Jain, Director of Marketing, Lenovo India said, “Lenovo Music Balm is an initiative that we launched during the pandemic to instil a sense of positivity through music. To see it getting recognized and awarded by ISA is indeed a proud moment for us. As a brand, we are committed to building initiatives that are people-oriented.”
