The Future of Mood in Music

One of my favorite hacks from Music Hack Day London is Mood Knobs.  It is a Spotify App that generates Echo Nest playlists by mood. Turn some cool virtual analog knobs to generate playlists.

    How are moods determined? I looked at the Echonest API but could only find how to query them, not how they’re determined and stored in the database.

    I ask because I have long lamented the demise of MoodLogic and am hoping to either find or build a suitable replacement. If “moods” are algorithmically derived, that puts a damper on things.
