Journalists pair articles with music to fight press censorship
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Launched on the annual World Day Against Cyber Censorship (March 12), the Uncensored Playlist project made previously censored articles freely available. Using 10 articles written by five journalists, the project pairs the written pieces to music. Streaming music platforms are freely available in most countries that deny the freedom of the press. With this in mind, ‘Reporters Without Borders’ in Germany saw an opportunity. Working with journalists from Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Egypt, Thailand and China, the project produced 10 pop songs using native instruments and musicians.
