|Abstract||In this paper we give an overview of the Foafing the Music system. The system uses the Friend of a Friend (FOAF) and Rich Site Summary (RSS) vocabularies for recommending music to a user, depending on her musical tastes. Music information (new album releases, related artists'news and available audio) is gathered from thousands of RSS feeds óan XML format for syndicating Web content. On the other hand, FOAF documents are used to define user preferences. The presented system provides music discovery by means of user profiling -defined in the user's FOAF description-, context-based information -extracted from music related RSS feeds- and content-based descriptions -extracted from the audio itself.
