The goal? To provide a richer interactive digital experience for users. Imagine being able to trade music with fellow musicians or create a new composition from an existing mix.

Musicovery has a plug-in for iTunes, which allows you to listen to your own music library according to the mood you’re in or are after.

The plug-in displays right to the Itunes application window Musicovery‚Äôs mood/dance matrix. Songs from your music library are played directly and a simple click generates a playlist. It’s fairly simple to set up.

They also offer a publishing service to create e-books or you can contribute to their collection of public domain titles.
