Pandora Web 2.0 Pandora Web 2.0 Presentation Transcript

  • Pandora
    “It’s a new kind of radio-
    stations that play only the music you like”
  • Pandora – Internet Radio
    Pandora is a free interactive internet radio that helps you discover music that you like.
  • What Makes Pandora Special?
    Other Internet radio sites such as,, and TagWorld use ratings, genre, and user connections to determine what music you will like.
    Pandora takes a more academic approach and uses The Music Genome Project.
  • The Music Genome Project
    Began in January, 2000
    30 experts in music theory worked together to create a system to analyze music
    Spending 20-30 minutes on each song, the Project considers up to 400 musical attributes including qualities of melody, harmony, rhythm, form, and lyrics
  • Getting Started
    • Go to
    • Create a username and password if you would like Pandora to save your stations
    • Enter a song title or artist you enjoy in the box under “create a station”
    • Pandora will play songs with similar attributes based on The Music Genome Project data
