+ about
Data visualization studying the compositional relationships between music and form in the album 'We Must Become the Pitiless Sensors of Ourselves' by John Maus.

+ goal 
Give shape to sound

+ process 
Visualized the metadata of each song by using existing graphic language of standard musical notation (charts, lines, and ellipses).

+ outcome
Viewed on a larger-than-life, 33" x 50" printed poster, both individual songs and the album as a whole can be observed. This provides a new outlet for engaging with the music, and a platform for new discussions to take place.
