Here is one of the most amazing things I've seen on the interwebs!

Crazy cool interactive graph of all musical genres, including samples for every example. Looks like it required a Herculean amount of labor.

(note it worked better on IE/Safari than Firefox)

(click "scan" then click on the genre of music, then on the artist you want to hear a sample of.

This is an algorithmically-generated 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.
