During the SXSW Hackathon, music experts explained the dilemma facings the industry as artists now create music at an unprecedented rate. Disrupting the historical context of a label. We wanted to create an avatar that helped artist and labels strategize better.
What it does
Virtual A&R leverages trusted industry API's such as Buzz Angle Music and QLOO to predict an artist's success based on trending indicators in real-time.
How I built it
I built it using AWS, QLOO for artist recommendations, and Buzz Angle to analyze artist statistics.
Challenges I ran into
Some of the recommendations didn't make sense so I found the use case of Movie to Artist suggestions which did.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Creating a working demo within the Hackathon
What I learned
How to statistically analyze music.
What's next for Virtual A&R
Working with sponsors to bring an official product to life.
