In a couple of weeks I’m giving a talk at SXSW called Finding Music with pictures : Data visualization for discovery. In this panel I’ll talk about how visualizations can be used to help people explore the music space and discover new, interesting music that they will like. I intend to include lots of examples both from the commercial world as well as from the research world.
I’ll be drawing material from many sources including the Tutorial that Justin and I gave at ISMIR in Japan in October 2009: Using visualizations for music discovery. Of course lots of things have happened in the year and a half since we put together that tutorial such as iPads, HTML5, plus tons more data availability. If you happen to have a favorite visualization for music discovery, post a link in the comments or send me an email: paul [at] echonest.com.
