"Rhythm Curation is targeted at streaming service editors, DJs, radio stations and other professionals." continues Billboard.
Two related characteristics exemplify the new music industry: music catalogs can run into the tens of millions of songs, and playlists are an increasingly important medium for enjoying these catalogs. Short of buying a music intelligence company like The Echo Nest, as Spotify did last year, you might not have the proper tool to craft playlists that take advantage of this abundance of musical content.
To help solve this problem, Gracenote has created Rhythm Curation, a platform to help curators sift through a huge catalog of songs and create better playlists. “Today, music editors don’t have tools to help them build eclectic playlists -- many simply rely on the search bar," Ty Roberts, Chief Strategy Officer and interim general manager of music for Gracenote, said in a statement.
Gracenote, Inc., provides music and video content and technologies to the world's hottest entertainment products and brands. Gracenote is the industry standard for music and video recognition and is supported by the largest source of music and video metadata, featuring descriptions of more than 200 million tracks and TV listings for 85+ countries.
