Decibels & Decimals is a collection of data visualizations and thoughts about the modern music environment. As data aggregation and crunching become increasingly common in nearly every daily activity, we are better equipped to draw insights on behavior and patterns. Decibels & Decimals aims to bring data driven thinking to extract trends in music sharing, creation, performance and reception. Perhaps these data can help us better understand and appreciate the soundtracks to our lives.
