This is my first time trying out elance, and a 'Virtual Assistant'. I own my own IT company in New Zealand and am very keen to start working with others. So here is small test project that I've been considering:

A research project to answer the question:

"What makes a great rock song"?

1) I would like to know how the music genome project classify songs   [obscured]  /wiki/Music_Genome_Project

2) I would like to know objective and subjective criteria for classifying music eg:

objective: beats per minute, chord changes, length of song, song structure
subjective: dramatic, bluesy feel, can sing to easily, good driving song

3) I would like to know if similar research has been done before (eg last.fm have a music classification engine). I think musicology is the term for defining music.
