Pandora is an internet radio gives people the music they love anytime, anywhere, through connected devices. Personalized stations launch instantly with the input of a single “seed” – a favorite artist, song or genre. The Music Genome Project®, a deeply detailed, hand-built musical taxonomy, powers Pandora’s personalization – using musicological “DNA” and constant listener feedback to craft personalized stations from a growing collection of hundreds of thousands of recordings. Tens of millions of people in the United States turn on Pandora to hear music they love.
Their sole mission is to play music you’ll love.
Since they started back in 2000, they have been hard at work on the Music Genome Project. It’s the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken.
Their team along with a number of musician-analysts have been listening to music, one song at a time, studying and collecting literally hundreds of musical details on every track – melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals, lyrics … and more! They continue this work every day to keep up with the incredible flow of great new music coming from studios, stadiums and garages around the country.
It’s easy, all you have to do is just drop the name of one of your favorite songs, artists or genres into Pandora and let the Music Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings – new and old, well known and completely obscure – to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.
You can create up to 100 unique “stations.” And you can even refine them. If it’s not quite right you can tell it so and it will get better for you. And the best part of all, its completely free, as long as you dont mind commercials. If you do than you can just upgrade and pay a minimum monthly fee.
