Visual Interface to Musical Genres, Musicovery

musicovery.png

Musicovery dubs themselves an “interactive webRadio.” It’s basically a visual representation of musical genres that you can click around and explore. They provide a palette of moods to get you started, Dark to Positive, Calm to Energetic. Start clicking around and let the music wash over you. No registration required, they make their money from a subscription to their “hi-fi” version as well as affiliate links to purchase tracks on Amazon or iTunes.

Reminds me of a service that John Battelle wrote about three years ago. MusicPlasma shows an Apache error message when you click though. Either it’s dead, ignored, or lonely. Anyone home?

UPDATE : Frederic Vavrille from Musicovery writes in the comments that the site Battelle was pointing to now lives at liveplasma.com. It appears that both Musicovery and Liveplasma are related. While Musicovery lets you click and listen while you explore, Liveplasma does not let you listen to music but adds Movies Titles, Directors, and Actors as vectors to explore.

  1. Thanks for the correction. I’ve updated the post. Do both Musicovery and Liveplasma share the same relationship maps?

    Are you using the Amazon APIs to determine how things are related?
