– Went to Tufts’ Computer Science Hackathon, as an Echo Nester. Built The Feminest, which tells you about the gender makeup of a band. The Feminest also doesn’t have data on everyone yet, but try out Rihanna, Tom Waits, Austra, Icona Pop, Chvrches, and My Bloody Valentine to get a sense for how it works. More data and actual audio coming soon!
– ISMIR is next week: I am presenting a poster about how DJs pick tracks, and have a ‘performance’ of Elvis Costello songs resynthesized using Elvis Presley songs, featuring Ryan Groves on voice and chord-selection.
