One thought on “MusicBox Browser Visually Maps Your Music Collection

  1. This is a pretty cool concept for an interface for sorting through a song collection… especially the larger and more diverse the collection. I like the ability to turn off sorting criteria (artificial factors like “genre”).

    One thing I didn’t see in the video was a way to turn off display of certain subsets, like certain elements of the genre category. If you have a really big collection, you could face thousands of little colored circles in the main display, and it would be useful to be able to remove certain elements.

    Maybe that feature is in there… I’ll have to dig through her thesis and find out.

    Still… cool interface… interesting way to create various themed play lists, based on progressions of harmonic content or rhythms.
