Eigenradio: Statistically Optimal music
    #3431072 - 12/01/04 03:20 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Wow. You have to check this out right now.

Eigenradio, a project of MIT (surprise), is an internet radio feed that is a product of a ton of radio stations combined, processed mathematically, and played.

Quote:

All those stations, playing all that music, all the time! There's at least 40 different songs being played every week on most radio stations! Who has enough time in the day to listen to them all? That's why we've set up banks of computers to do the listening for us. They know what you really want to hear. They're trading variety for variance.

Eigenradio plays only the most important frequencies, only the beats with the highest entropy. If you took a bunch of music and asked it, "Music, what are you, really?" you'd hear Eigenradio singing back at you. When you're tuned in to Eigenradio, you always know that you're hearing the latest, rawest, most statistically separable thing you can possibly put in your ear.




Listen to it for a while.

Sometimes it has a pulse, and there is definitely a specific cluster of tone... The site is cool, explains it a little bit, the graphs are hilarious.

"Eigenradio makes its optimal music by analyzing in real time dozens of radio stations at once. When our bank of computers has heard enough music, it will go to work on making more just like it. Since we listen to so much music all the time, Eigenradio is always on and always live. What you hear on Eigenradio is the best of the New Music, distilled and de-correlated. One song on Eigenradio is worth at least twenty songs on old radio."

Oh ok, so it's less like replaying a ton of radio stations, and more like making music exactly like a ton of radio stations combined.

Damn that's bad ass. I'd like to see their 'bank of computers'
