Bringing Music to Life with “Lyric Sync Technology”

COTODAMA Lyric Speaker is the next generation of speakers which displays lyrics in sync with the music. When you choose a song on your device, the lyrics show up on the translucent screen. If it is a mild song like a ballad, its font and visual effect become soft. If it is an energetic song like rock, its font and visual effect become strong and powerful. Music analysis technologies developed by National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) automatically analyze the song's mood and structure, and the built-in expression engine creates motion graphics to each song that's played. COTODAMA Lyric Speaker is the world's first speaker equipped with "Lyric Sync Technology," the technology to automatically visualize the lyrics in a beautiful way.



Enjoy over 2 million song lyrics

COTODAMA Lyric Speaker has partnered with SyncPower Corporation (PetitLyrics), Japan’s largest lyrics database company to visualize more than 2 million songs. The collection of songs will continue to expand.

“With streaming, music services have been evolving at an astonishing pace. More music is available and more accessible than ever before, but lyrics haven’t kept up.

The brilliant team at COTODAMA are on a mission to evolve our lyrical experiences. Abbey Road Red explores the world’s most innovative technologies empowering music and culture. We are happy to partner with COTODAMA as the company moves forward with new experiences and products for their lyric visualisation technology.”
