Every Music Genre at Once
Ye man, thanks to Ufonaut Interflug, here’s a page that will tell you all about music if you listen. It’s an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1387 genres by The Echo Nest. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.
