The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is the flagship provider of media and communications in Australia.

As one element in the partnership, ABC TV and Radio National created a website project with CHE entitled 'My Life As a Playlist'. Combining historical information with contemporary example, the site engaged the public in crucial questions about how and why we use music as a means of emotion and mood regulation. It focused on the ceremonies and rituals surrounding major events such as birth, death, falling in love and getting married. It offered the public an opportunity to upload their favourite music and asked them to engage in surveys of personality, emotion and mood.
