Echo Nest visualization

Animated visualization of audio analysis data provided by The Echo Nest. The Echo Nest Analyze API uses a perceptual model of human listening to generate detailed XML descriptions of a song's structure and musical content, including pitch and timbre information for all segments of the song. My code generates an animation usng the XML data for a given song and the cover image of the source record.

Made with Processing.
