Infographic: Seattle music connections

November 18, 2009

Rachel Ratner’s Cartographic Study of Musical Incest is a giant (60 sq ft) map of the connections between Seattle bands, from Nirvana to Fleet Foxes to scores of bands that you’ve probably never heard of unless you’re an Emerald City local. If you are, you can also see the full map (the above is a detail) at the Expo 87 art show next week.

Also, I’d love to see one of these for the Boston music scene? Anybody game?

  1. this is awesome. would be really cool if they used all the various bands’ typography for their names – you could trace styles etc.

    we could do some sort of cool mashup with this data if they made it available to look at how many of them toured with each other etc
