In April 2013 Shazam launched a contest on eYeka to identify creative talents who can turn its real-time music tagging data into stunning time-lapsed visualisations. eYeka’s community contributed 22 high-quality music data visualizations, and the winner, French freelance designer Jean-Baptiste Bodinier, stood out by the simplicity and stylishness of his visualization. He was commissioned by Shazam to create a video using music tagging data for the CMA Awards 2013, which you can see above.
