I have finally set down an intial release of the musicGrabber tool, which is being developed by myself and kurtjx over on sourceforge. You can now grab the python tool without getting your hand dirty in our subversion repository. Go take a look
I recently started as a Data Analysis Engineer with Musicmetric after completing a PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. My research interests are in large (music) collection navigation, (music) recommenders, playlist construction and social music in general. I am an administrator of the MyPySpace open source project to create translation layers and interesting navigation tools to social networks in general and myspace in particular. I also DJ, mostly Drum and Bass, a bit of breaks and other things. The DJing is primarily in two places: The DJ Skool and Wired Radio Goldsmiths' Student run radio statio. I'm also the station's Audio Engineer.
