Music Notes

Exploring music listening data as a visual representation of self.

Shelves of vinyl records and cassette tapes spark thoughts and memories at a quick glance. In the shift to digital formats, we lost physical artifacts but gained data as a rich, but often hidden artifact of our music listening. This project tracked and visualized the music listening of eight people over 30 days to explore how this data can serve as a visual representation of self and present new opportunities for reflection.
