The Music Genome Project was first conceived by Will Glaser and Tim Westergren in late 1999. In January 2000 they joined forces with Jon Kraft to found Pandora Media to bring their idea to market. The Music Genome Project was an effort to "capture the essence of music at the fundamental level" using almost 400 attributes to describe songs and a complex mathematical algorithm to organize them. Under the direction of Nolan Gasser, the musical structure and implementation of the Music Genome Project, made up of 5 Genomes (Pop/Rock; Hip-Hop/Electronica; Jazz; World Music; and Classical), was advanced and codified. - Source: Wikipedia
