Music infographics: two sets to exploreFebruary 27, 2010
Visualizing the Beatles: Graphic designer Michael Deal is heading up a collaborative project of Beatles-related infographics, Charting the Beatles. Some stunning examples are on his site (the one above, for example, is a visualization of the keys of songs in Revolver; click here for the full graphic and key) and many more, in a wide array of styles, can be found at the Flickr group. [via Visualizing Music, which you should be reading if this stuff turns you on.]
Sample Maps: Author and musician Ethan Hein is currently writing a book titled Cold Technology, Hot Beats: The Soul of Electronic Music. As part of this project, he’s been preparing ‘sample maps,’ graphics that show the relationships between songs and artists via samples (the one above is for Bjork – click for a larger version – and you can see the full set here).
