Decibel: Music Metadata On Steroids
Could More Info Mean More Music Discovery?
Remember pouring over album liner notes to learn who played that great sax solo on the new Stones album? OK maybe you're too young for that, but there have probably been times when you wanted to learn more about the track you were listening to.
New startup Decibel trys to solve that problem by replacing the usual title, album cover art, artist name, and track length with 150 fields of metadata including things like bacgkorund singers, genre, and production assistants. With the data Decibel can also offer sophisticated music discovery service that relating tracks "three dimensionally" rather than just by artist, genre or beats.
