UseableArt : Information + Design

The Beatles, Visualized [information graphic]

Who doesn’t love the Beatles? I confess, there was a time when I didn’t. But (perhaps its my advancing age) I do now, and even if you don’t, you have to respect their individual talents and collective impact on Rock and Roll. And just about everything else.

Beatles - Song Keys

Well, it seems that some clever fellow, talented information designer, and Beatles fanatic has found the time to create a pair of beautiful visualizations. Above is a visualization of each of their album’s “key distribution over the Circle of Fifths”. Whatever that means. I’m not a formally trained musician. And below, a dynamic chart of their work from the years 1963-1966.
