For her master’s thesis at MIT, a Anita Lillie developed MusicBox – an interesting application designed to visually map out your music collection.
MusicBox analyzes the meta data of your music and categories the music based on a variety of attributes. Using this information, it creates a visual map of your music, which you can use to navigate your collection. Check out the MusicBox demo above to see it in action.
Here’s a screen shot showing the main features within MusicBox:
Lillie hopes to make a simplified version of MusicBox for the iPhone. You can get the full scoop on MusicBox from Lillie’s thesis (pdf).
What do you think – does MusicBox’s approach to navigating your digital music collection seem like a useful advance?
