music plasma

musicplasma a visual metasearch engine that will allow you to identify all the artists that fit your musical tastes. (via diversionz)

Rather impressive. I followed this mefi link to a related application gnoosic which asks for 3 favourites and then makes a suggestion based on this data. boynton summarily filled in 'beatles, beach boys - and (just to skew the mix) Hi Lo's)... Based on your actual profile, gnod suggests you to listen to the Rolling Stones (if you don't already know it)
Strange. But then changing the Hi Lo's to Bach also returned the Stones. By Julie London it was looking sus, but Mrs Miller was the real killer)

How about tossing Chad Morgan into the mix?

Beatles + Beach Boys + Chad Morgan = Rolling Stones

Beatles + Chad Morgan + Mrs Miller = Rolling Stones

Chad Morgan + Mrs Miller + William Shatner = Mama

Just for a lark I goes ...

Chad Morgan, John Williamson, Joan Armatrading.

Voila! Phoebe Snow.

What is frightening is that I have every record she ever made. (She, Nina and the latter day Marianne Faithful make up my musical Hotham Handicap triple dead-heat.)

On the other hand I also own the oxymoronic "The Best of Wesley Willis" CD.

Chad Morgan, Slim Dusty, Marianne Faithful= Ornella Vanoni ?!

Thought this is odd.

Stan Freeberg, Alan Sherman and (the fictitious, because I'd forgotten Spike's last name was Jones)Spike Miller (entered and re-entered etc)=

Deine Lakaien,
Dimitri From Paris,
Anthony Pappa,
Toto Lanomposina,
Helmut Lotti,
Don Cherry
and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

I've got me some classic hits listening to catch up on!

That's a true blues quaddy happening with Phoebe there.
And further research:

Mitch Miller, Mrs Miller, Glen Miller =
Benny Goodman.

(think I'm working this out...)

Mitch Miller, Chad Morgan,Glen Miller =
Benny Goodman

(altho - maybe not)

Mitch Miller, Chad Morgan, Charlie Drake = Benny Goodman.
