Pandora



I was shown this by my Dad, who was pointed in the direction of it by Roy Willams of the Wizzard Academy. This thing has to be the best development in music technology since the iPod and iTunes. I've just tried it a few times and already I'm hooked. It instantly makes you that cool guy who has a massivly diverse music collection of all those good songs that no one has ever heard of before.

Pandora is the brain child of Tim Westergren and others at the Music Genome Project who have "set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level" And by doing so have a massive collection of tunes that are sorted not necessarly just by genre but by the aspects of the song itself.
Everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.
-The Music Genome Project

Pandora is the player for this collection of music, and by putting in some input of your own, it caters what it plays to your likes and dislikes. Very cool, but hey why not give it a try?
