Music Intelligence for Sale

Music Intelligence for Sale | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Information is changing the music industry; not only in the ways we consume and discover music, but as well in the ways companies are arming themselves for competition.


Streaming services see gold in the figures that fuel recommendation algorithms, and now content companies, driven too by the alluring growth of digital tech, are proudly announcing their latest partnerships with leading software-as-a-service companies and the terabytes of social data multiplying on their servers.


The future of music discovery—and potentially, of artist development—is now in the numbers.

ThinkDigital™'s curator insight, April 9, 2014 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.

Spotify debuts new Discovery engine, Collection, and Follow, which lets users follow friends and celebrities

Spotify debuts new Discovery engine, Collection, and Follow, which lets users follow friends and celebrities | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

At an event in New York City today, Spotify announced a new Discover section to help users find new music on the service, a Collection section for holding all your music, and Follow, a place to keep up to date on celebrities. Spotify CEO and Founder Daniel Ek admitted that users say Spotify is great when you know what you want to listen to, but not so good when you don't — the genesis of the company's new features. Some examples of content boxes on the new Discover page are "You listen to David Guetta and Skrillex.

 

You might like Avicii," and "Since you follow The Knife, we recommend Deep Cuts for your collection." Ek said, "Tiles of cover art may not mean much... We wanted to give users the context that's missing." There also appears to be a recommendation engine for showing you artists that are touring near you.
