Orpheus is a platform independent MP3 player and exploration tool for discovering the universe of new and independent recording artists. We introduce a novel approach to music organization and discovery by mining the rich repository of data from the web, matching this data to a user's digital music collection, and building a network visualization of artists in the user's collection, as well as artists that are not in their collection.
Imagine exploring new artists based on a producer you love, or a label you like, or with whom a particular artist has collaborated. Now imagine all of this information linked to your MP3 collection, so that as you listen to an artist, you can view how this artist relates to other artists in a dynamic, interactive network. As you browse, reviews, discographies, interviews and recommendations are made available at a click of your mouse.
