AcousticBrainz/Ideas

From MusicBrainz Wiki

This page describes ideas that we've had for AcousticBrainz project.

Data exploration

An interactive system to explore the data that we already have in AcousticBrainz. For example, what are all of the songs that we say are in a certain Key. Order these by tempo and then group them by mood.

Search

A search system (which could be part of the above task) that lets you search for tracks by their metadata or by extracted features. This could use an existing search technology (e.g. Solr), or something custom-written for the task. A similar task would be to be able to place songs in an n-dimensional similarity space to explore songs that are acoustically similar.

Data accuracy

An investigation of the accuracy of AcousticBrainz compared to other music databases. For example, MusicBrainz has many tags which represent genres. This information is also available from services like Last.fm. Lower-level information such as key and bpm is available from services such as the Echo Nest.
