The Music Genome Project

My bachelor's dissertation was on Music Recommendation. The real problem with music recommendation is that it is very difficult to definitely identify what is it that an individual likes about a particular piece of music - the individual himself is often not sure.

Now a project called The Music Genome Project attempts to take a crack at it by collecting "the most sophisticated taxonomy of musical information ever collected on this scale"
