Information Design

In 2004, The Rolling Stone Magazine published 500, a list called “Greatest Songs of all Time.” My aim for this project was to recreate this list as an interactive data visualization, telling the descriptive story of this piece in music history. The original list was compiled based on votes by 174 western musicians, critics and music industry figures. In addition to this initial data, I created further parameters such as band name, year of recording and genre. The dynamic slider allows the exploration of every listed song by rolling over it. With every movement, additional information is shown aside. Used Software: Processing, GoogleDocs.
