Musicplasma

January 5, 2005

Musicplasma creates visualizations of collaborative filtering data about musical artists. While these kinds of hyperbolic treemaps are hardly a new idea, I think the execution works pretty well here; unlike most of those cloying Brain-style interfaces, I can actually envision using this thing.



I would love to see them incorporate more structured data, like album names and track lists, and relationships between individual musicians. I could easily envision this as a kind of musical Semantic Web browser, like an RDF version of Pete Frame's Rock Family Trees.
