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.
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.
