Music to My Ears XLV

Shades of the Network Auralization for Gnutella project, Eigenradio is an MIT Media Lab service that analyzes real-time broadcasts of dozens of radio stations, analyzes which songs are statistically optimal -- "only the most important frequencies, only the beats with the highest entropy" -- and then distills the broadcasts into an iterative stream.
