I am working on finding out some information on few pieces of contemporary music (after or around 1900) that has not been given names, composers or dates.

So I am looking for a web application or something of the sort that recognizes music through uploading music files. SHAZAM is a similar application that works on iPhone.

Echo Nest makes some pretty wild song analysis applications. One of their pieces of software is called "Analyze", and seems to take care of what you are looking for: http://the.echonest.com/analyze/


In the past, I've used MusicBrainz to catalogue music that was improperly or completely untagged. It works fairly well for a large portion of my music.
