Ever wondered where a sample in a song comes from, or what the original song sounds like? WhatSamples is an iOS app that identifies the song that is playing, and shows you all the songs that were sampled in, and sampled by that song.
The app lets you listen to the query song and the original sampled songs. It also lets you "follow the trail" of samples, and go from song to song to explore the world of music sampling.
We used the Gracenote fingerprinting SDK to identify the song, and retrieved the sample data from WhoSampled.com, and videos from YouTube.
- Based on a pitch by Emily Gonneau of MIDEM

KALX 90.7FM Berkeley is the greatest radio station ever! But I'm not always near a radio, or able to sit there and listen to the Internet stream all day. They do publish a (sort of) live playlist on their website at http://kalx.berkeley.edu/playlists. I've created a service that takes the latest songs added to the playlist, and posts it on Twitter along with YouTube videos of the songs being played.

There's a theory that if you start Pink Floyd's album "Dark Side of the Moon" at exactly the right time when watching "The Wizard of Oz", you'll see all kinds of more-than-coincidental similarities and syncups between the two.
Our hack is a companion app to the Wizard of Oz, which uses the Gracenote Entourage SDK to detect and identify where you are in the movie, and then uses Spotify to play the album at the exact time for the greatest effect.
Controlling stage lights is cool, but the DMX512 protocol is pretty hard to program with. Webola is a simple Web API built on top of the Open Lighting Architecture that makes programming lights so easy, everyone can do it!
Go to http://10.15.2.178:3000 to try it out! (only worked at the hackathon)

Pachislo is a popular Japanese slot machine game that can be found in Pachinko parlors all over the country.
Pach.io stands for "Pachislo Radio". Using Gracenote's Rhythm API, it creates a different radio station every time, based on a random combination of Gracenote's Mood, Genre, and Era descriptors. (like "Energizing R&B from the 90's" or "Sentimental Country from the 2000's") Music is provided by Spotify and YouTube.
Spin the wheel and find a combination you enjoy!
