Music Map Update: March 2020

- Posted March 3rd, 2020 by

Heya folks! My wife, Erin, recently made the first big honkin’ update to her Music Map in a good ol’ while. Long enough, in fact, that I’m gonna give this fantastic community resource an additional promo push here on our blog. Learn more about it below! ٩(•̤̀ᵕ•̤́๑)ᵒᵏᵎᵎᵎᵎ

Look at all the music. ♬♫♪◖(●。●)◗♪♫♬

For those of you unaware, for several years now Erin has worked to maintain an in-depth dataset for our collective of collectives (chiptune, visual, VGM, & nerdcore artists) in the form of an all encompassing Google Map & Spreadsheet. The map shows where various artists and venues are located around the globe, with the spreadsheet featuring supplementary info (links in particular). And to think all of this originated from a humble Facebook doc of chiptune artists back in 2011-12. I guess this is what happens when a Librarian with a Master’s Degree gets involved in the project! (#⌒∇⌒#)ゞ

If you’d like to feature your project on this resource, or you need an update made to a former listing, please request such via the following Gform and Erin’ll get you squared away in a future revision.

To get the full details of exactly who and what were added in the latest update, scope out Erin’s recent thread in our Facebook Community here.

A huuuge thanks to Erin for continuing to upkeep this stellar project, and also to all of you for utilizing and supporting it over the years. It’s extraordinarily rad to watch it grow and change with each new iteration, and to continually hear stories of how different folks have utilized it around the world. Here’s to continuing that for many more years to come! ♥
