request is for a tool that could analyze a music
track and identify as many characteristics about it
as possible to categorize it automatically. This
categorization info could then be used by artists to
find similar tracks that they could mix. i.e. a
guitarist could have tool analyze a guitar track and
use the info to find keyboard/drum/bass tracks that
could possibly mix with the track. This automation
would help widen the contribution bottleneck, so that
music contributers could find existing tracks that
work with their style, and people who like to mix
tracks could find musically compatible tracks without
having to listen to every sound track to find a match
manually.

The same tool could also help users find music that
has the sound and feel of one track they know they
like, which would help listeners find music that fits
their tastes and mood.
