MILES & MILES OF INFLUENCE

May 26 is the day Donald Trump officially secured the Republican presidential nomination—but less alarmingly, it’s also the day Miles Davis would’ve turned 90. To commemorate the occasion, Legacy Recordings and Polygraph (a publication for data-driven storytelling) are launching The Universe of Miles Davis, a website visualizing the Miles’ ongoing cultural impact and importance. 

Built from data collated from an estimated 2,120 Wikipedia pages mentioning the legendary artist, The Universe of Miles Davis uses visuals and animation to construct charts, graphs and interactive models illustrating that Miles’ impact extends beyond music into the worlds of fashion, film, politics, fine art, pop culture, social media and more.
