‘Infinite Gangnam Style’ Will Melt Your Brain | Evolver.fm

‘Infinite Gangnam Style’ Will Melt Your Brain | Evolver.fm | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

Paul Lamere, who earlier wrought havoc on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” has trained his song-hacking sights on (what else?) “Gangnam Style,” the pop sensation from Korean popstar Psy that continues to sweep the globe and inspire awkward analogies.

The awe-inspiring result: Infinite Gangnam Style, which anyone with a web browser (i.e. you, right now) can use to play a never-ending version of the song until their brain melts and they have to hit the “Make it stop, please” button. How long can you take it? Test your mettle and find out!

The app works by slicing the song into discrete unit using The Echo Nest’s analyzer technology (Lamere is director of developer platform for The Echo Nest, publisher of Evolver.fm), and then the analyzer again to figure out which segments sound similar to each other.

Suzi Astrauskas's curator insight, October 18, 12:13 PM

I found it really interesting the process they go through to choose the music in discover weekly for some people making them feel seen in the world. They choose the discover weekly for people so well that people are like "yes, this is exactly what I need." Its new every week so each week its like a whole realm of your daily listening. Based on the title of the website I thing that this source is kind of reliable. They talk about different technology from the tech in cars to tech in music. But this isn't really a music article website. It's just for blogging about the new and old technology. It can be somewhat beneficial for audio industry professionals.

Emily Coppa's curator insight, October 18, 12:29 PM

As a frequent Spotify listener, I can say this article is very interesting. It discusses how Spotify generates everyones "Discover Weekly" playlist, which is 30 songs that they've never listened to but will probably love based off of the other artists and genres they are accustomed too. This article is on a website called "hackernoon.com," so I'm not sure how reliable the information from this website is going to be. This source is unlikely to benefit audio industry professionals, considering the article is about an app that only streams music. 

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 10:51 PM

I think Spotify's discover weekly is.a great addition to the app. I am a Spotify user and I feel as though that apps know my musical taste more than I do. I don't think this a reliable source due to the fact the name of the website is hacker noon.com. I don't think this would inform any audio production professionals.

Google’s Next Big Goal for the Home: Make Sound Smart

Google’s Next Big Goal for the Home: Make Sound Smart | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

Kami Schaefer's curator insight, October 18, 7:28 PM

Google's next product called the Google Home Max speaker is just making its appearance in the world. Personally owning a google product, the google pixel phone, I absolutely love it compared to any android, or apple product I've owned. This speaker seems like it would be worth the $399. 

 

This source seems reliable for the fact the site seems legit, all numbers and words are assorted correctly and straight forward. This website is definitely promoting all google products but the speaker in particular. 

 

I feel this source can be somewhat useful to people in the audio industry for the simple fact that they're selling and audio based product. Music related items typically spark the interest of people within the music industry.

Despacito is one of the catchiest songs in 2017 especially during the summer. There hasn't been a popular Latin song since Living La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin.  We need more songs like this in my opinion.

Suzi Astrauskas's curator insight, October 18, 1:22 PM

I found this very interesting that the music industry does in fact use Instagram to help artists gain more followers and lets fans into their daily lives. The Instagram team thinks of new ways to make things better for an artist and they also come up with creative ideas for some of them. This platform isn't really a music platform in fact they use it for all different types of things. This is not necessarily used for the music industry so therefore it really isn't used for people in the industry. 

Dante Mackell's curator insight, October 18, 6:34 PM

Instagram is a powerful application that helps promote established celebrities such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga. This is a very reliable source for the audio industry since millions of consumers are using using Instagram daily and are constantly tuning in on their favorite celebrities. For the Record labels in the industry this means much needed exposure for their artists.

 

Pros: The upside to the app is that Celebrities off all varieties can reach out to the world and express themselves creatively.

 

Cons: It's difficult for up and coming artists to get their voices heard on Instagram without an already established fanbase.

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 11:11 PM

I found this article eye opening , I never realized how much  Instagram has an impact on the music industry. Its making it easier for them allow fans to see a personal look on the celebrities lives. Their numbers began to grow and so do their pockets. I believe this a really reliable source but I do not think audio industry professionals will gain any knowledge from reading this.

This article was great, I’m very interested in the fact that this man is still apart of major hits at 80 and not to mention made one of the most popular songs in history Y.M.C.A. Also the label is independent so we're seeing some pretty good accomplishments. My source of information is definitely reliable as well as audio professionals. Their also a major source of information in the music world.
