(Prog) Peter Gabriel has been hired as an adviser for a project which aims to measure the physiological effects music can have on health. The former Genesis frontman is working with Boston-based firm PureTech Ventures on their Sync Project research study, in conjunction with academics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Berklee College of Music.

It uses information gathered from smartphones via music and health apps. According to the Boston Globe, the researchers have been tracking songs on apps like Spotify to see how they influence biometric data created through health apps and wearable devices.

Sync Project co-founder Marko Ahtisaari says using artists to help analyse the data will help enhance the creative process. Gabriel, Annie Clark, composer Esa-Pekka Salonen and John Hopkins are the four musicians onboard. Read more here.
