From Masters of Media: One doesn’t typically think of the music industry as having a scientific element to it. However enthusiasts, executives, programmers and designers alike have gotten a bit more creative with understanding the massive amounts of data entangled in the music industry. Using visualizations in music, or rather for music, can be traced back to the iconic image from Reebee Garofalo – The Genealogy of Pop/Rock Music. Garofalo created this image to chart the growing number of genres and artists in pop and rock between 1955 and 1978. By manually researching and capturing this information as he did, Garofalo ultimately created a piece of music history with his image.
