So I'm fairly certain this has been discussed before, but I'm going to pose the question again. Music Information Retrieval or something else? I prefer the term Music Informatics as I find it to be more generally encompassing of the sort of work that get labeled with the more well used term music information retrieval, but perhaps not?
So apparently muxtape has been reborn as a sort of attempt to do MySpace Music correctly. It seems to early to tell if this will work out for them, but I'm really hoping that 'correctly' means a gratuitously open api and quality linking open data compatible rdf. Though really none of that will matter if they don't get past the critical mass threshold of users/participants. We'll classify this one as wait and see...
or at least I do. I'm going to be mixing records this evening on Goldsmiths student radio. From 6-8pm GMT. Standard fair, drum 'n bass, breakcore, *core (that's a new genre I'm declaring. The hip kids pronounce it wild card core). Mixed live, in all its glory. I'm going to try to be in the freenode irc channel #wiredradio , but this may or may not work out. Also, if you have an aversion to visiting websites, but like using the internet, the stream is:
If you throw that uri into something that can deal with streaming aac (I hope you're happy Richard...) you should be good. Quicktime Player works, so does VLC, as does any player built on ffmpeg.
right. back to writing up this ISMIR tutorial proposal.
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.
