Hoo hoo! Like a search owl

Have you ever heard a song and been reminded of other songs? Some folks have created a new type of search engine which allows you to upload your favorite song and then analyzes the frequencies and characteristics of the song in order to provide similar matches. I tried it on a few tracks and sometimes it is pretty close. It's a fun way to search for similar sounding music or audio samples, and makes you wonder what it is (sonically) that makes songs unique.

Try it out on the OWL search site. It references mostly creative commons licensed works.
