The Music Genome Project
In January of 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.
Together they set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. What resulted was an assembly of hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm,to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony.
Since 2000, this group carefully listened to songs of tens of thousands of different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day to include all the new releases.
