musicr – tagging for music?

Korby Parnell is looking for Flickr for Music. There are some good approaches to this. Ⅰ think there are two approaches that can be useful:

  1. Automatic Music analysis. Let the computer scan the music, decide what it sounds like and find other muisc like it. Probably only turns up the same stuff and doesnt really expand your music horizon.
  2. Tag based systems/Folksonomies: Here you have people tag music with attributes and you need to filter out what you like and what not. Generally a much better and creative system but also tedious and error prone.

and of course then there is Amazon and iTMS with its “see also feature”. But then you are lost when it comes to independent artists and labels.

Here are some links to get started:
