Visualizations for Music Discovery

p>As you probably know, I am very keen on visualization and information design. I recently came across a fabulous presentation on visualizing the history of music. The presentation you see in embedded here was shared by the author, Paul Lamere. You will find in it a brief history of visualization, leaning strong on Ed Tufte's writings and then some great examples of visual representations in the form of trees, maps, time series, connection maps, and more.

The presentation is nearly 240 slides long and gets pretty technical later on when it examines the visualization of aural information. Enjoy!
