I was playing yesterday with some information from London orchestras and drawing this kind of graphs for fun: number of recordings

Then I came across the London Symphony Orchestra recordings data compiled by Philip Stuart and it is so nice and so well structured that only took me a while to convert it on something machine parseable. The stats that you can gather from there are amazing.

I did a couple of graphs and animations and today I did this nice interactive visualization of all the recordings the orchestra has made. First they are grouped by componser, then by the work and finally individual recording info is shown. Click on the link below to access it:

LSO interactive recording visualization

Notice that this visualization is better experienced on a computer rather than on a touch device because the information about composer/work/recording is shown on hovering the mouse over the bubbles.

Anyway, there is some very nice data available and we can build a lot of interesting stuff on top of that. Ideas?
