Change the Way You Look at Your Music Collection with ‘museek’

museek

Here at AndroidGuys, we love to showcase applications that we think exemplify some of the cool things that Android handsets are capable of.  Such is the case with music application, museek.  Designed as part of a research project at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)  the app puts an innovative spin on your music collection. 

As opposed to traditional music apps, museek is able to determine similarities between your songs and provide you new, intuitive ways of finding other .  This similarity mapping helps you explore new music from other artists based on your personal collection.

Say for instance you start off with a rock song and decide that’s not what you feel like listening to.  Once you skip it, museek brings up another style of music.  It will repeat this until you find a song that you don’t skip.  At this point, the player will bring up more music in that genre.

Another great feature is an automatically generated tag cloud which lets you jump right to a particular genre or sub-genre.  Just like you find with most websites, the more you have of one style, the bigger the tag is.  We almost forgot to mention how great museek looks doing it!  There are 2D and 3D maps that make browsing and exploring music considerably more fun than your current player.
