Echonest API for Zotonic

This is a Zotonic module which hooks into media files uploads and augments any uploaded audio media files with info from the echonest API.

After the upload of any audio media file, it calls the Echonest API to identiy the uploaded MP3 file. After identification, it will store the found metadata in the rsc record of the audio file, ready for use in Zotonic templates.
