MeloMe fuses Spotify, Youtube, and iTunes functionalities in a streaming tool designed for the classical music and jazz enthusiast. The core of MeloMe is a database of downloadable performances of classical and jazz tunes, stored in high resolution formats and linked to various types of accessible background (liner notes, reviews, alerts to upcoming live performances).
The main asset of MeloMe, however, is a search engine which extracts a consumer profile on the basis of your previous downloads, and which uses these profiles to propose new music suggestions in the centre or at the periphery of your taste – depending on the degree of downloading adventurousness you have previously manifested. Since user profiles in MeloMe are incrementally updated, they are increasingly efficient in predicting something as probabilistic and individual as musical taste.
