So much more than samba
The Economist (blog)
AS RIO DE JANEIRO clears up after Carnival, it is not only the sound of samba that is subsiding. The relentless dance music that is increasingly a feature of the week has also been turned down from 11.

We chose this article for intellectual arts because it involves music. Music is and art form, and in this case, it's electronic music. This article  shows how much of an effect Latin electronic music has affect on Brazil. It talks about RMC (Rio Music Conference) has sparked a hub for a more modern, and technological society.

Google analyzed our MP3 libraries to visualize the evolution of music | GigaOM Tech News

Google analyzed our MP3 libraries to visualize the evolution of music | GigaOM Tech News | Music News | Scoop.it

Google Play knows a lot about what its users listen to, and on Thursday Google shared some of those insights via a new tool called Music Timeline. It’s an interactive feature that shows the popularity of genres over time, as well as the popularity of subgenres and artists within them. It’s also a great way to show off Google Play as a worthy competitor to more widely used streaming services such as Spotify or Pandora, or more popular MP3 stores such as iTunes.

 

This type of knowledge is a big deal. As I explained earlier this month, the battle to become the world’s dominant streaming service is heating up as more listening goes digital. Google is a late-comer, but one with some serious potential.

 

I don’t know how Google Play’s recommendation algorithms work, but it seems like Google could make a pretty good first hack at classifying someone’s taste just by comparing his or her MP3 library against the aggregate data it has gathered as a part of Timeline. If the Metal line on my graph is disproportionately thick, it probably says something about what I like to hear. Add to that information about what I stream, and the picture becomes clearer.

 

Across all industries, companies are figuring out how to turn the data they’re collecting into better products. In fact, that’s one of the driving themes of our Structure Data conference in March.

This could be a beneficial tool for a start up record label to see how the industry is growing.  It could also be useful for a person who is interested in the history of music. The question is how accurate will it be in the future with so much independent music being produced.

David Sands's curator insight, November 9, 2014 9:33 PM

I think this is a very intriguing way to show mp3's capability, it's cool to see a visual perspective on the evolution on music, from different sounds, to the way that they were recorded.
