Tristan F from the BBC posted this hand drawing of his musical taste to Flickr. As he says in the photo comments: I had to stop at some point so it’s not comprehensive. But it’s all about connections.
I find these types of drawings to yield really interesting insights into the listener and to music in general. For instance Tristan has a line connecting Sufjan Stevens to Bill Frisell. I’m still pondering that connection. As I prepare for my upcoming ISMIR tutorial on Using Visualizations for Discovering Music, I’d like to collect a few more personal visualizations of music taste. If you feel so inclined , draw a picture that represents your music taste, post it to Flickr and tag it with ‘MyMusicTaste’. I’ll post a follow up … and particularly interesting ones will appear in the tutorial.
