My friend bought a copy of Strange Maps and this is where I discovered this music map. It is a piece of art by James Plakovic. If you look closely, the map is actually what looks like an orchestral score for 37 instruments in a total of 32 measures. On his page here you can listen to the artist’s interpretation of the piece: I would’ve have embedded it but I’m having trouble with stupid Quicktime. However, the recording kind of differs from what is actually on the score.

Here is another version I found where somebody put the notes through Sibelius to see what the notes sounded like together:

James Plakovic is quite the artist. Look at all these master pieces!
