And most of us love to discover new songs/bands which suits our taste – Infact, many a times we become good friends with strangers just because we share the same music taste!! Right?
I covered one of the cool applications (Musicovery) earlier and here is the second installment in online music discovery series.
Pandora – a jukebox that plays songs which are musically similar to the music you like.
How does it work?
Pandora is not just-another Internet radio, but is a project which involves group of musicians and music technologists. And what do these guys do?
“Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level...assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or “genes” into a very large Music Genome.
Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song – everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony”
So basically, if you love Pink Floyd, you may not get to listen to just the floyd songs, but songs which are musically similar to the floyds [i.e. psychedelic ones!] Overall, Pandora is an amazing experience and is highly recommended for music buffs!
The only way to define my Pandora experience is – Serendipity. I found some damn good songs which I have never heard of!
If you enjoy Pandora, check out another cool Internet radio – Musicovery
