liveblue.wordpress: We propose a system for displaying music libraries in a more intuitive way for the music player Amarok, through a 2D representation (two dimensions), in order to organize the songs by the similarity between them.

Given the increasing ease of obtaining all kinds of music via the Internet, the personal musical libraries are increasing more and more, so it is important to organize this collection in order to facilitate navigation and search for music throughout the music library. We propose a system for displaying music libraries in a more intuitive way for the music player Amarok, through a 2D representation (two dimensions), in order to organize the songs by the similarity between them. This representation is via contextual information allocated on special tags created by the user and associated to the musics, for example: happy, instrumental, carnival, agitated etc. or by information such as artist, album, genre, year etc. already present in the music allocated on ID3 tag.

This is the result of a job done by A group of Students, having Sandro Andrade as a Mentor and me as quick problem solver.
