Opening the Box

So I raved about MoodLogic before, and how you tell it the range of music you like. Very cool.

But then I recently came across the Music Genome Project, which attempts to break music down into its "genetics". And by genetics, they mean some crazy 400 aspects for every song: "melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony".

Best of all, they've already broken down most of the popular songs out there, and put it into a Flash player for all to enjoy: Pandora. VERY cool.

You just tell it a song (or artist) you like, and it does the rest to find you more like it. And you can at any time tell it you like/hate the song they played, and it adjusts your playlist on the fly!

Give it a shot. I use this at work now instead of iTunes!

Wow, this blew me away! 128 bitrate quality too. I used to use Yahoo's launchcast, but they would keep playing certain songs over and over, obviously payola (pay for play).
