music_history.jpg
an algorithmically generated visualization based on statistical information provided by Last.fm software, more particular every song listened to by a particular user over an 18 month period of time.

each colored band represents a musical artist, progressing left to right. the span is wider when listening was more frequent, & skinnier when it was not. the hue of the artist represents the time of the first listen for the particular user: cooler colors represent artists who have been listened to for a long period of time while warmer colors represent artists who are more recent in the user's listening habits.

"while this is interesting to look at, it is more significant on a personal level. when viewing your own music listening history you are reminded of past events that caused the trends to emerge."

I'm crazy interested in seeing this from my last.fm account... anyone have an online system for generating this?

Such a system exists at http://lastgraph3.aeracode.org/
