Musical icon MILES DAVIS would have been 90 years old today, and to celebrate the milestone, SONY MUSIC's LEGACY RECORDINGS and POLYGRAPH ("a publication for thoughtful, data-driven storytelling) is launching THE UNIVERSE OF MILES DAVIS, an immersive destination website visualizing the astounding ongoing cultural impact and importance of the legendary trumpet player and cultural icon, who passed away almost 25 years ago, SEPTEMBER 28th, 1991.
Built from data collated from the approximately 2,210 WIKIPEDIA pages mentioning the artist, THE UNIVERSE OF MILES DAVIS uses stunning visuals and animation to construct charts, graphs and interactive models illustrating that DAVIS’ larger-than-life impact extends beyond music into the worlds of fashion, film, politics, fine art, popular culture, social media and more.
An innovative 21st century interactive platform, THE UNIVERSE OF MILES DAVIS is as revolutionary as the artist and genius it celebrates.
