Art & Technology Unite For Museum’s New App

The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art is pleased to announce the launch of a unique new digital installation and take home app for iPad developed by Tulsa-based semantic technology company Moomat.

Representatives from Moomat will be on hand to provide a demonstration at the joint iPad App Launch Party and the exhibit opening for the Alexander Calder Exhibit on Thursday, October 3 from 5:00p.m.-7:00p.m. in the Museum (2021 E 71st St/Tulsa, OK).

“This cutting edge technology allows people across the world to explore our Museum’s collections,” said Drew Diamond, Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art Executive Director. “The Sherwin Miller is dedicated to promoting Jewish heritage, history and culture through art and education. Thanks to Moomat and this new installation and app, we are able to share that mission locally and globally.”

“We’re excited to be working with such a forward thinking museum and are continuing to help them to develop new and interesting ways to increase the explorability and interactivity of their many other collections,“ said Moomat CEO Daniel Mooney.

The first technology project between Moomat and the Museum was to create an interactive way for guests to explore the vast Fred Strauss Collection, an impressive collection of letters, postcards and stamps collected and curated since the 1940s that chronicle the history and traditions of the Jewish people.

The new iPad app will be a take home version of this collection that will allow anyone to download and explore in great detail, the collection, and how it connects with various aspects of Jewish culture and history. Plans are in motion to develop and release new digital installations revolving around the Museum’s extensive collections and to actively incorporate them in the commercial app.

CultureScout Offers A New Way To Explore Music, Integrates With Spotify

Today, Moomat LLC launches the full integration of Spotify Premium, the streaming music service, with CultureScout for iPad, an app which explores music, artists, albums, and songwriters through their connections with popular and classic culture. “Our team worked with Moomat to ensure an amazing music experience for CultureScout users,” said Ronald Pompa, Spotify’s Product Owner for Software Partner Platforms.

Moomat is working towards creating the largest semantically connected cultural database in the world and CultureScout enables users to explore it. Integration with Spotify Premium allows CultureScout users to sign in and listen to full-length songs while exploring.“We want to give people new and interesting ways to discover and enjoy great music,” explains Moomat founder and CEO, Daniel Mooney. “We’re thrilled to have worked with Spotify to help us make that a reality.”

Moomat expands and curates a proprietary database of over 300 million data points, connecting over 40 million songs, two million bands, 2.5 million books, 200,000 films, one million television episodes, 40,000 record labels, 53,000 architectural structures, 16,000 pieces of art, 20,000 video games, and more, forming a unique inter-related web of culture.

CultureScout identifies the threads that connect music, art, literature, film, television, people, architecture, and places. “There is more to a song than taking a minute to listen, more to a piece of art than a look,” says Co-Founder Shaun Edwardes. For instance, the album “Animals” by Pink Floyd was influenced by George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm, and features album artwork by notable rock band graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, centered around the Battersea Power Station, a decommissioned coal-fired power station in London, which was also featured in the films 1984, The King’s Speech, and the Beatle’s 1965 movie, Help.
