About The Echo Nest
The Echo Nest powers more intelligent digital music applications using a patented machine-learning platform that automatically:
- Reads about music, crawling the web and analyzing the text on millions of web pages to understand what the entire online world is saying about every artist, album and song.
- Listens to music, analyzing every song on the web to extract key, tempo, rhythm and timbre and other attributes — understanding every song in the same way a musician would describe it.
- Learns music trends, analyzing online music behavior (social networks, p2p, blogs, online forums, playlists) to understand online buzz and identify music trends.
The Echo Nest is a three-time National Science Foundation SBIR grant winner. Private investors include Commonwealth Capital Ventures, Argos Management and a series of angel investors, including a co-founder of the MIT Media Lab.
