New Seevl API Lets Developers Add Music and Artist Data to Apps - Semanticweb.com

New Seevl API Lets Developers Add Music and Artist Data to Apps - Semanticweb.com | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Steve O’Hear of TechCrunch reports, “Dublin-based Seevl has released an API for developers to let them easily add music recommendations and artist data to their apps. The new offering gives app makers access to some of the underlying technology that currently powers the Seevl consumer-facing app, which is a cross-service music discovery offering that gives music recommendations and lets you build ‘mix tapes’, amongst a plethora of music-related features. The Seevl API is powered by the startup’s own music meta-data graph, which itself is built on top of Freebase, Wikipedia and MusicBrainz, and uses Seevl’s in-house semantic technologies and recommendation and search algorithms — both founders, Alexandre Passant and Julie Letierce, previously worked at the renowned Semantic Web R&D lab DERI.”

The Spotify effect: Why every company is now a data company

The Spotify effect: Why every company is now a data company | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

After landing a $200 million credit line and acquiring music data platform The Echo Nest, Spotify is widely expected to announce its IPO in coming months. Spotify is a unique spin on the same fundamental formula that generated value for Netflix, Amazon, Groupon, Pandora and LinkedIn before it.


So what exactly is this magic formula? It’s simple, really: When a company uses data to personalize its inventory, it creates a better UX. This UX in turn draws in millions of users and investment dollars.

What’s the lesson startups can derive here?


Value today is less about big sales and more about how many users a company continually engages using data.

This year's edition of Music TechPitch 4.5 takes place in London April 8. This event typically features music tech startups that are at a more developed stage than one finds at incubator demo days. While all are likely interested in additional funding and deals may be made, Music TechPitch 4.5 presents itself as an opportunity to get introductions and start conversations rather than close deals. Music TechPitch 4.5 is similar in some respects to events like Midemlab's startup & app developers competition;

Sónar+D 12.13.14 June 2014 :: Beats and geeks

Sónar+D 12.13.14 June 2014 :: Beats and geeks | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

The British newspaper The Guardian hosted the first Music Hack Day (MHD) over a weekend in 2009. On Octuber of that year, it was organized in Barcelona for the first time by the Music Technology Group (MTG) de la Pompeu Fabra and the phenomenon began to spread around the world to the point where it covers the 20 cities that today host this well-known hackathon for the music industry.

The formula is: the organizers bring together companies so that they open up their technologies (web services, APIs, etc.) to a group of hackers selected beforehand after a call for proposals. From that moment on, the developers have carte blanche to enter the codes, manipulate them and experiment for 24 hours in order to develop a new generation of music applications .

ThinkDigital™'s curator insight, April 9, 2:56 PM

pioneering semantic web technology...  as suggested by this article, amazon's & google's "giant brain" model can be effectively applied to verticals as well.  gratifying evolutionary strides...  but i'd also like to see advances that make better use of and accommodate user inputs.  what i envision is reverse filtration – something like what amazon is already doing with shopping for goods – especially with regard to lyrical subject matter, not just audio/aural elements like beat, melody, genre, rhythm and such.
