Pandora is a fun little project that creates a radiostation for you based on the artist/song you initially gave it. I typed in Frank Zappa upon which it started to play what it thinks is Zappa-related music and informed me that:

Based on what you’ve told us so far, we’re playing this track because it features a subtle use of vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation, demanding instrumental part writing, mixed acoustic and electric instrumentation and a vocal-centric aesthetic.

Mild rhythmic syncopation, eh?

  1. Hi freaks!
    Thanks for the link – Pandora is great!! I put in King Crimson and it gave me a quite accurate breakdown of their ‘style’ – and then started to play KC tracks!! Unfortunately, for the moment, you have be a US resident to register, due to a whole bunch of legal crud about audio streaming copyright laws, etc etc (“too many lawyers, too many lawyers …!)

  2. Hey, its great, thanks! I’m not in the US, but all I had to do is type in a 5-digit zip-code, and here it goes! :-)
    We always listen to music while working (drawing), and got REALLY bored of the CDs we had.
    We’ll try it in the next weeks, but it seems to be a great idea! Now “Metallica radio” is on the air… ;-)

  3. By listenning to Frank Zappa radio I got these:

    The Knack, The Kinks, The Monkees, Toy Dolls, The Cream, Peter Frampton, Elvis Costello, Velvet Underground, Tin Huey, Soft Machine, Herny Cow, Jackson Browne, Marmalade, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, The Flaming Groovies.

    And Wowie Zowie by Frank Zappa. Ha.
