Analyze the music you are listening to while running. Are there any differences in your listening stats when you are at home? Find out if running has any effect on your taste in music.

Idea + User tasks

The user can sort his listenings stats in two categories. While running and rest of the time and thus compare which to which artists he is listening and how often. Nothing too fancy ;).


  • Data Sources: Last.FM and Nike+
  • Language: processing/Java

Design + Interraction

  • The artists will be shown in two bubble charts, according to the listening frequency. Names are shown as long as do not need too much space or when desired by clicking into a bubble. The size of the visualization can be adjusted, it is tried to sort the bubbles so that they fit on the screen without overlapping. With two sliders, the considered time period can be chosen. The timeline begins with the first run and goes to the end of the listening history. In between, a start and an endpoint can be chosen.
