John Batelle's blog tipped me to this one. The National Science Foundation gave just under $100,000 to the University of Charleston for the development of a music search engine that uses aesthetic similarity.
The engine has the ability to 'listen' to the music and find comparative pieces in the same genre and music style.
In and of itself that is impressive, but the cross applications are enormous for sound recognition based search.
