What I’ve Got: Every Noise

by post_author

I recently discovered the website Every Noise at Once (http://everynoise.com/engenremap.html).
Every Noise offers a visual representation
which maps “music along a spectrum where mechanical sounds reside at the top,
organic at the bottom, atmospheric on the left and bounchy on the right.”

Spotify’s “data alchemist” Glenn McDonald created the website and comes
up with a lot of these descriptors. He started with a list of 500 or so
common descriptive words/phrases from Spotify’s “ongoing web crawling of
millions of sources of musical information and stuff online.” I
thought this was a really interesting, interactive way to explore music.
