Skipping To The Good Part Of A Song

from the bye-bye-miss-american-pie dept

Perhaps its our MTV culture that has reduced our collective attention span to 30 second snippets, but in any case, the need to get to the “good parts” of a 3 minute song has spurred the creation of song analysis software that automatically picks out the chorus. SmartMusicKiosk has been developed to filter through pop hits and skip from chorus to chorus so that people can browse through music to quickly identify what they like. Sort of the inverse function of a Shazam which we wrote about a long time ago — so instead of providing a snippet of a song you like to be automatically identified, having a snippet automatically provided to be identified as a song you might like.
