present an approach that offers the user a convenient and meaningful
way to access her music on an iPod. By exploiting information
on acoustic similarity and community-based music labels, a music
collection is automatically structured and described to allow for easy
orientation and navigation within the collection.

that similar sounding pieces are grouped together. As a consequence,
regions of musical styles emerge.

the left or to the right using the scroll wheel (4). Additional
information about a subregion is displayed in a textfield (1) and

specific area, one can simply scroll to that area and press the select
button (5). The currently played song is displayed in (3).
