With so much music available, finding new music that you like can be like finding a needle in a haystack. We need new tools to help us to explore the world of music, tools that can help us separate the wheat from the chaff. In this panel we will look at how visualizations can be used to help people explore the music space and discover new, interesting music that they will like. We will look at a wide range of visualizations, from hand drawn artist maps, to highly interactive, immersive 3D environments. We'll explore a number of different visualization techniques including graphs, trees, maps, timelines and flow diagrams and we'll examine different types of music data that can contribute to a visualization. Using numerous examples drawn from commercial and research systems we'll show how visualizations are being used now to enhance music discovery and we'll demonstrate some new visualization techniques coming out of the labs that we'll find in tomorrow's music discovery applications.
