How data is transforming the music industry

Since then, most music fans have understood this has radically changed how they listen to music. Less understood are the ways that raw information – accumulated via downloads, apps and online searches – is influencing not only what songs are marketed and sold, but which songs become hits. Decisions about how to market and sell music, to some extent, still hinge upon subjective assumptions about what sounds good to an executive, or which artists might be easier to market.

Continuator

It learns and interactively plays with a user in the user's style. It is based on a Markov model of musical styles augmented to account for efficient real time learning of musical styles and to arbitrary external bias. The Continuator is an attempt to bridge the gap between two classes of traditionally incompatible musical systems: 1) interactive musical systems, limited in their ability to generate stylistically consistent material, and 2) music composition systems, which are fundamentally not interactive.

The purpose of Continuator is to extend the technical ability of musicians with stylistically consistent, automatically learnt musical material. Stroke of Genius: How Derek Amato Became a Musical Savant. Derek Amato is one of only a few dozen known "sudden savants.

How Sam Phillips Invented the Sound of Rock and Roll

While helping to launch the careers of Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin' Wolf, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, he remained the mad genius of sound. In 1954, Phillips acquired two state-of-the-art Ampex 350 tape recorders and started playing around with what we now call "slapback echo delay"—the echo that results when you record to one tape machine's record head while also recording the playback (usually the vocals) being played on another machine.

The project began in 2012 when Jon (bass) and Sam (guitar) met at NYU and started playing along to Ween songs together. When Jon met Evan (drums) in jazz auditions, he convinced him to join them, and they started playing around with their sound with covers of Led Zeppelin, Mac Demarco, and Thee Oh Sees. Then Evan’s roommate Aram joined them, adding rhythm guitar to round out their sound, and they started composing and making demos as their sound matured into complex bedroom psych inflected with everything from bossa nova to noise rock.

A comeback for the humble cassette? - Features - Music - The Independent

We were witnessing the obsolescence of technology at first hand, right there; as we explained how it worked it almost felt like we were experts on an episode of Antiques Roadshow. (Although sadly in the item in question was worth almost nothing.) Two brothers, Benny and Rafi Fine, have seen the viral potential of this kind of thing, and have recently started a series on YouTube called Kids React To Technology.

Their latest film features the baffled responses of a group of children to the Sony Walkman; the cassette format makes virtually no sense to them, and it's not hard to see why.

Boil the Frog lets you create a playlist of songs that gradually takes you from one music style to another. It's like the proverbial frog in the pot of water. If you heat up the pot slowly enough, the frog will never notice that he's being made into a stew and jump out of the pot. With a Boil the frog playlist you can do the same, but with music. You can generate a playlist that will take the listener from one style of music to the other, without the listener ever noticing that they are being made into a stew.

How does it work? To create a Boil The Frog playlist, just type in the names of two artists and a playlist will be generated that takes you gradually, step by step, from the first artist to the second artist.

The Thai Elephant Orchestra began with a simple question: "If elephants can make beautiful paintings, why can't they make music?
