    This is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1288 genres by The Echo Nest. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.

    Click anything to hear an example of what it sounds like. Click again to jump to the middle of the song, a third time to stop it.

    Click the » on a genre to see a map of its artists.

    A Retromatic History of Music (or Love) follows these genres across years.
    We Built This City On follows them to cities.
    Genres by Country breaks them down by strength of association with countries.
    Drunkard's Rock wanders around for a really long time.
    The Sounds of Places plots countries as if they were genres.
    The Sounds of US Cities plots cities as if they were genres.
