music genome project

there are a bunch of ways to analyze and recommend music.

  • shazam, which uses acoustic fingerprinting to recognize songs based on 15-second excerpts
  • transpose’s goombah and the indy project, which use collaborative filtering to recommend music
  • music plasma, an interactive flash application which illustrates (perceived) relationships between artists.
  • hit song science, which predicts where or not a song will be a hit.

recently, the Wall Street Journal featured the music genome project, which paid a bunch of musicians to listen to thousands of songs and evaluate them on a bunch of objective criteria.
