Timeline shows a century of rock history

Posted to Network Visualization  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

Jessica Edmondson visualized the history of rock music, from foundations in the pre-1900s to a boom in the 1960s and finally to what we have now. Nodes represent music styles, and edges represent musical connections. There are a lot of them and as a whole it’s a screen of spaghetti, but it’s animated, which is key. It starts at the beginning and develops over time, so you know where to go and what to look at. Music samples for each genre is also a nice touch. [Thanks, Jessica]
