Datajockey is a project that I have been working on for some time. The primary goal of this project is to create an environment where users can explore audio meta data and use that exploration during the production of creative works, in this case, dj-style mixes.
This project has gone through several revisions, it was my Masters thesis project, it has evolved since then, but it still isn't quite ready for general use, largely because I haven't had enough time to smooth out the rough edges.
I have been using it personally, in its many revisions, for quite some time now, and if you are interested in checking it out or contributing then you can check out the github development page.
I presented Data Jockey at Piksel 08 in Bergen, Norway on December 4th, 2008.
I presented Data Jockey at the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) in the summer of 2007. See my publications page for a copy of the paper which was published in the proceedings.

- Chris Jones (aka Yard) created the icons, and provided general graphical design as well as general brainstorming for this project.
- David Chandler (aka Dj Broken Window) provided inspiration, brainstorming and lots of music recommendations.
- Xavier Amatriain, Stephen Travis Pope, Curtis Roads guidance with the project [my masters thesis committee]
- William Wolcott, Charlie Roberts brainstorming.
- Open Source software developers: without the work of others (through software libraries, irc consultations, etc) I could not have created this project in any reasonable amount of time.
