As an official API sponsor of the first annual SXSW
Music Hackathon Championship, Senzari®
will publicly open MusicGraph
to all developers wishing to tap into the world's most extensive
repository of musical knowledge. Developers that incorporate MusicGraph
into their applications will be able to easily add Graph Search and
Playlisting features to their apps via the respective APIs, as well as
incorporate powerful lyrical data and social metrics into their services
by leveraging the newly released Music Data API.
"After a few months of working closely with several partners to test the
API in a private beta, we couldn't think of a better way to open
MusicGrah's doors to the public than to do it during SXSW's first-ever
Music Hackathon," explained Demian Bellumio, COO of Senzari. "It is a
very interesting time in the music data space, and we believe that our
ambitious vision for the future of MusicGraph will allow for tremendous
innovation opportunities for developers and data scientists interested
in pushing the boundares of digital music experiences," added Bellumio.
New capabilities being unveiled for the first time at the Hackathon
include the integration of lyrical features into the Graph Search API.
For example, you can now easily execute complex graph searches involving
lyrics like: "Songs
by Coldplay from the last decade that mention the word love," or "Songs
by Shakira in Spanish from the 90s," both of which are not possible
to execute on any of the leading music platforms or search engines. In
addition, under the Music Data API, it is now possible to access lyrical
features of millions of songs, as well as detailed social and play
metrics from hundreds of thousands of artists across the world's leading
digital destinations such as Twitter, Facebook and Vevo.
"We are very curious to see how developers will utilize MusicGraph to
develop new digital music applications that leverage the full power of
our data and algorithms," commented Bill Hajjar, CEO of Senzari. "In
addition, given the recent consolidation in the space, we are excited
about the interest from leading providers that are now looking to
explore fresher and more innovative approaches to their music
