Visualizar Evolucion de Generos Musicales

En Puerto Rico clasificamos la musica genericamente como Salsa, Rock, Merengue o Regueton.  Sin embargo, al profundizar en los generos hay muchas divisiones, segun se innova en la musica.  Ejemplo, no es lo mismo Maelo que Eddie Palmieri, de la misma manera que Brain Eno es completamente distinto a Roots Manuva.  En los sistemas grandes nos gusta clasificar los generos musicales, de la misma manera que la taxonomia sirve para clasificar sisstemas biologicos.

Me gusto como Details presento la evolucion del hip hop hace como 10 a/nos atras.  Lastima que la perdi.
Aqui hay una buena introduccion al tema.

While researching several sources for building up the initial phases of the music genre tree, I have found several good sources that I plan to reference.  These are a few of the most interesting sites in no particular order:
La opcion de Wikipedia se basa en texto, y aunque detallado es malo para visualizar el desarrollo o la raiz de un genero.  Entonces Ishkar hace esta increibke interface enfocado en funk y electronica:
Este otro enfoca en rock:

The 1950s invented rock and roll and be-bop. The 1960s invented modern rock, blues rock, jazz rock, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, soul, hard-bop and free jazz. The 1970s create stadium rock, disco, funk and punk. The 1980s created the music video and many metal-related genres. The 1990s had grunge, Britpop, boy/girl bands and hip-hop. So what’s our decade’s claim to fame?
The one new style of music that could be called original is danceable rock and roll. I have yet to hear it given a proper name but what I am referring to is the current guitar bands that incorporate elements of dance and rave music. Examples would be Franz Ferdinand, The Klaxons, The Killers, Hot Hot Heat, Kasabian, and the Kaiser Chiefs. These bands wear their influences on their sleeve but have managed to create something relatively new. You can hear everything from the Bee Gees to The Jam and Joy Division up to Pearl Jam and The Stone Roses. I don’t necessarily like all these bands — I thoroughly dislike the Klaxons — but at least they are doing something slightly original.
The one element of the 2000’s that will be remembered is the utilization of the internet. Online music communities are forming without any influence from the corporate music world. That is a truly exciting occurrence in new music.
Recien tropece con esta gran idea para la visualizacion de generos usando controles de Wii y 2 proyectores:
In Sketch of a New Esthetic of Music, 1970, the Italian Ferruccio Busoni proposes the use of electricity and other new sound forms as a source of inspiration for a so called “music of the future”. Therefore, electronic music has always been associated with the production of sounds generated by electronic components and instruments since 1960. Today it includes many forms and varieties, ranging from experimental music to dance music.

The popularization of the instruments and computers, allied to the broad and easy reachable information through the internet, enabled the appearance of countless rhythmic structures, giving rise to new styles and sub styles within contemporary electronic music.

SyncLost is a multi-user installation for immersion in the history of electronic music. From a complex timeline, rhythms and sub-rhythms merge to create new sounds.

The project's objective is to create an interface where users can view all the connections between the main styles of electronic music through visual and audible feedback. The choice is individual and leads to a collective consequence in the spatial visualization of information.

Simplemente curioso, y me quede sin encontrar el diagrama...Pero encontre un alma afin que le gusta presentar visualizaciones graficas de musica:

Una taxonomía de los géneros músicales es algo así como un cuento de nunca acabar. El que se proponga hacer eso tendrá mucho tiempo en sus manos y dedicarse exclusivamente al asunto porque siendo un arte la música es algo complicada de catalogar.

Adelante y éxito.
