I guess I was too much into NIME-organization back in March, to notice the launch of the The Million Song Dataset. It contains no audio, but 300 GB worth of metadata about 1 million popular music songs. This sounds like hours of great fun for music researchers around the world, and will probably also be a great resource for music students working on MIR-applications. I would also expect that it is possible to use this for a number of creative applications.
