When I was scanning through a Forbes article entitled “The Equivocal Business Of Women In The Music Industry,” this paragraph caught my eye.
“[A] 019 study led by a team at Northwestern University in the U.S. found that there is a typical ‘female sound’ and ‘male sound.’ For instance, songs by men were found to be more danceable than songs by women. Women’s songs also tended to be more acoustic than men’s songs.”
“Using data from more than 6000 male and 2000 female solo artists, the authors of the study built an algorithm that was able to randomly pick a song and accurately tell in more than 90% of cases, whether it was created by a male or female artist.”
Discuss that amongst yourselves. And there’s a lot more here.
