Who else has heard of this search engine database for music you have yet to discover? the MUSIC MAP it generates is the GOAT.
I’ve been using Gnoosic for about 2 years (ish)
GNOD (The Global Network Of Discovery).It is an ongoing project developed by Marek Gibney, based in Germany.
if you are looking to find new music and artists to listen to or learn about this database is where you need to be.
Gnoosic is able to produce a personalised Music map of artists or music you may like based on your search results
Here’s how easy it is to use GNOOSIC
Type in up to three bands/names
I typed in two that the database knows & one that it didn’t know. I wonder if we can use it to introduce other users to new music artists and genres?
Based on my 3 choices it aks if its predictions are correct. You have the option of choosing you don’t know.
The other part of Gnod is MUSIC MAP.
It’s great for finding new artists similar to who you type in the database. What I love about this system is that it is a community project.
If the artist you want doesn’t come up you can ask to add it to the database. You can also verify other users artists uploaded.
There is a link to submit artists who aren’t on the map too. And if you are of the pedantic type you can fix typos too 😉
Gnoosic and the Music-Map are the music parts of Gnod. Together, they are visited by over 200000 music fans per month and provide them with millions of music recommendations.
I chose to look up Orsten
I’m impressed by the results closest /similar in style to Orsten Moderator, Nym, Boogie Belgique, Moderator are artists I already follow. I’m tempted to check out Madwreck.
It also brought up a bunch of bands/artists (not so similar) but who I enjoy too. A few examples are
If you pick an artist/band on the map it automatically regroups names to the most similar. It’s dynamic.
It would be great to be able to put in biographies too but I find a quick place to find new music to listen to, write to, write about or to submit yourself as an artist -its a great project.
The big test is to find a new artist & song that I love that will feature on this blog. I’m sure it will!
Simple to use.
Great for finding new music and artists & bands. its also great for understanding what music genres or (sub-genres) appeal to you & for helping people who want to write about music use this as a resource to research genres, news…
It’s fucking useful. Trust me.
