Myna Music – Discover Music Through Music

MynaMusicName: Myna Music

The music recommendation services that we have today invariably revolve around one thing: metadata keywords. And one has to wonder, is it really so difficult to come up with something that little more intelligent? Something that doesn’t necessitate us type word after word describing what we are looking for, or individualizing several different songs for an automated system to produce results that might be completely off the target.

That is what this new service aims to revolutionize. It is named Myna, and it basically lets you discover new music to listen to by having songs that you like played and analyzed using a proprietary system.

In their own words:

“Myna listens to and comprehends music directly, making it possible to search based on mood, sound, or texture or autonomously generate highly-personalized music playlists — all without metatags.”

In short: Myna is a platform that can use music to find music. All you need is to supply a “seed” song for the whole system to be swung into action.

Myna is still being developed, and those of you who are lucky enough to attend the upcoming MIDEM event will be able to catch a live demonstration. The rest of us will have to wait for an early beta to be announced.
