Every Noise at Once: Interactive Music Genre Map

every-noise-at-once
Was für ein schönes Spielzeug: Ich höre mich jetzt schon den halben Abend durch Every Noise at Once und kein Ende in Sicht: Genre klicken um reinzuhören, der Pfeil (») rechts daneben öffnet jeweils eine Karte mit den zugehörigen Bands/Künstler_innen, gespickt mit weiteren Soundbeispielen. (via Waxy)

This is an algorithmically-generated non-analytical map of the musical genre-space. Genres and artists are positioned by code and data, adjusted for legibility, but the underlying vectors are less interesting than the juxtapositions and clusters that they produce, so the axes have been deliberately left unlabeled and uncalibrated. You are invited to imagine your own qualities and magnitudes that the geometry might be expressing. Click anything to hear an example of what it sounds like. Click the » on a genre to see a map of its artists.
