Hello Music lovers !
I realized i didn't talk about my project here, on the MusicBee forum.
Well... i did a little on this topic
, but since that, i worked on it and shared it online !
The purpose of this giant map, is to display an exhaustive list of musical genres, connected by their musical / sounding similarities. Not by their historical, ethnical, lyrical themes or visual specificities.
It should allow the user to discover unknown or badly-known musical genres, that are close from what he/she uses to listen to.
It also provides informations and sound samples for every genres (still working on it).
Please, see the FaQ
and the "About Page"
for more informations about "why ?", "how ?", and "what ?
Since i put it online, i've had some feedbacks from a few peoples. They were quite positive, except for the ergonomics, which i worked on these last days.
I made some changes that will be implemented to all the genres of the constellation, time after time.
Here is a preview of the last changes:
It's a solo project that will take me some time to achieve properly, with my technical limitations.
Now that i worked on some ergonomic weaknesses, i have to make the changes for all the constellation, and adjust genres localisations and connexions on the go.
So let me know what you think about this project, and the things you found good or bad.
Later i'll check to make a search engine, but i guess it will be quite hard for me, so it will be much later ^^
If you're interested to follow the evolution of this project, i put updates notes regularly on my Blog
(in french), and on my Facebook
Page and Twitter
And all apologies for my english by the way, it's not my first language
