Live Charting Lyrics with “Hey Jude”

December 6, 2010

LucidChart.com gives a clever example of “live charting”: the process of diagramming a flow chart in time.   The given example diagrams the lyrics from “Hey Jude”.  It’s clearly a commercial, but it’s still a nice little demo.   It’s unclear if the author is the same person who did the original static diagram, I couldn’t find the original version online, only the linked page referencing it.  It’s interesting how the lyrics to certain pop songs can often be described so succinctly.

Alberto Antoniazza : Rock and Roll Tube Map

March 10, 2010

Alberto Antoniazza provides another well designed entry in the surprisingly popular “tube map of rock music” category.

He has a flickr page up with the full size version.

If you’re interested in the other tube map based rock maps, you can check out Dorian Lynskey’s map for sale at the London Transport Museum Shop (I think Paul had that one on his wall at some point.)  Also worth checking out is the Last.fm tube tags project that was covered here previously.

Using Visualizations for Music Discovery

October 22, 2009

Hot of the presses, here are the sides for the tutorial that Justin and Paul are presenting at ISMIR 2009 on October 26.

Note that the live presentation will include many demonstrations and videos of visualizations that just are not practical to include in a PDF.  If you have the chance, be sure to check out the tutorial at ISMIR in Kobe on the 26th.
