The day job shall take the priority today, and so, beyond a massive shout out to top limey colonial hangout aping lounge Pegu (Gin! More! Gin!), what we thought we would share with you is a playlist. Bundled in with Roxio's The Boom Box, which we had purchased to record LPs, is Predixis' Music Magic Mixer.
MMM's thing is to scan your music collection, which in our case took the best part of three days, and create "unique sonic fingerprints". These can be then used to create playlists with a similar mood and feel. We have only tried about two of them so far, and thought, for your amusement, and possiblly the calumny of passing trolls, to post one here. At the moment it seems to rely on bringing up a few songs from the same album, and also seems a tad wedded to whatever genre descriptions one has given it, but there's a definite germ of an application here.
Anyway, have at it...
