12 fév. 2011, 17h26m par Erkan-YilmazI'll list here the compatibility with users before "being friends" with them.
In case you wonder: this is personal research. I could imagine that it can help me answer questions like:
- In what ways does our taste differ or gets closer after 1 year?
- Do you know when you can celebrate an anniversary with your friends?

Under the direction of the enthusiastic Yannick Nézet-Séguin the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal (OMGM) presented two pieces by Russian composers. The theme, One Thousand and One Nights, was inspired by the first piece, during which the orchestra was accompanied (if an orchestra can be accompanied) by two dancers. (Anik Bissonnette was the headliner. She was accompanied by Shawn Hounsell, who also choreographed their work.) Some 2500 people filled the Salle Wilfred-Pelletier at Montreal's Place des Arts.
The first piece on the programme was Scheherazade by Николай Римский-Корсаков (Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov). The dancers appeared three times during the work, performing on the apron. As a result, the orchestra itself was located farther back on the stage, which improved its sound, but made it harder to see the individual members. The orchestra's first violin, Denise Lupien, who interpreted Scheherazade's theme during the work, was loudly ovationed by the audience and the dancers alike. …
31 déc. 2007, 21h01m par DukesTravelsAnother month down, another handful of CDs to add to the pile. Once more, what I grabbed this month continues to show how varied my tastes are. Here's the haul for December 2007:
>> ABBA: The Definitive Collection
Come on, admit it... you like ABBA too. I needed to fill that gap in my collection. The Swedes have more to offer than just gummy red fish. ;-)
>> Mike & The Mechanics: Rewired
In 2005, Mike Rutherford's splinter band from Genesis got back together to record their first album after the tragic passing of one of their lead vocalists: Paul Young (no, not the one who had the 80s hit "Don't Dream It's Over").
Naming the album Rewired was fitting in many ways. First, the band's sound was reinvented, which had the side effect of many of the band's Genesis fan contingent, especially the self-proclaimed progheads, calling it a complete disgrace to Mike Rutherford's name. I disagree, and find the new sound - which draws some elements from electronica…
28 nov. 2007, 12h40m par EpitymbidiaWell, if you take a look, even a not very close one, just at the surface so to speak, through users' journals and group discussions etc, you will discover that there seems to be one thing that nearly everyone does, did or surely soon will do: Questionnaires. Any version of a music quiz asking questions like "where did you hear band X for the first time" or "what's your favourite song by artist Y" etc.
I always refused making something like that. On the one hand because it is only to help people to represent their taste as fast as possible, and on the other hand because the questions are just coincidental... "Of course they are", one could say, but nevertheless I would think the whole affair to be more meaningful if I would consider myself, concerning which group or which artist I would like to ask which question...
The other important reason for me not to make it was the fact that my whole profile wasn't really representative for my musical preferences. …
19 mai 2007, 16h14m par GarzoHugoOne of the useful things about Last.fm is tag radio, but it's only as good as the tags users put on artists, albums and tracks. classical tag radio, and classical music in general, suffers from poor tagging (not to mention that horrible 'Music Box' stuff — ban, ban, ban). Clearly, the majority of listeners to classical music do not tag the music they listen to. Of course, systematic, good tagging only works if enough users do it, and if they follow the same system. So, here's a suggestion for anyone who comes across this little note. Classical music is usually defined by period, so we could use the following traditional method:
renaissance (1400-1600) — John Dunstable, Josquin des Prez, John Taverner, Thomas Tallis, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Orlande de Lassus, William Byrd and Giovanni Gabrielibaroque (1600-1760) — Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Gregorio Allegri, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Pachelbel, Henry Purcell, Alessandro Scarlatti…
29 mars 2007, 18h50m par benadianJohn Cage is the Andy Warhol of music. Both are good idea people, but that's pretty much it. All of their art/music sucks, but at least it inspired other people with open minds to do things that were actually good. But it also inspired a lot of people who were bad.
Their direct antecedent is Arnold Schoenberg, originator of the worthless 12-tone musical system.
19th-century romantic composers like Johannes Brahms, as well as the Russian nationalists like Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov & Modest Mussorgsky, were a direct influence on the instrumental rock & surf groups of the early 60s, particularly The Ventures.
French Impressionist composers like Erik Satie, Claude Debussy & Maurice Ravel were a direct influence on the ambient IDM genre. Compare Satie's "Gymnopedies" and Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 2. Besides the ambience, another thing they share in common is the odd time signature changes.
And as much as Frank Zappa insisted his main influences were Igor Stravinsky and Edgard Varese…
