Mix and Mash is a yearly competition in New Zealand where they invite people to create interactive websites/apps utilising the public data from one or more NZ data sources. For this project I looked at the NZ On Air music grants given over the last 20 years it had been running and created an interactive presentation which shows what artists and companies received money. As I was late to finding out about the competition, I built this in 2 days before the closing date!
Each line represents funding to a particular artist/label and its length represents how much was funded. Lines are arranged in a chronological order, to emphasise the aspect of time and progression for the 20th anniversary of NZOA music funding.
You could filter by artist and label and also funding type (single, album, video) and see the total amount of funding received by that artist/label.
I developed a method to scrape the information from the NZOA website and to then process it for data retrieval and filtering. I started devising some techniques in deep-diving JS objects similar to how one would explore an SQL database. It was my first foray into this concept and very rudimentary, but I was happy with the results given the limited time I spent on it.
