I came up with a very simple first draft of how I could set out the genres in a timeline style. It would have the different genres placed above each other going from the right hand side to the left like a traditional timeline. The main problem was that the genres hadn’t all been invented at the start of the 20th century, most of them being invented throughout. I placed each genres that I’d chosen; Classical, Electronic, Rock, Hip Hop and Pop in relative positions to roughly when they had been invented during the 20th century to represent where they would be on the poster. The problem that I found was that it wouldn’t look that good if the wavelengths for some of the genres just started half way along the timeline, I would have to have a small line or something leading up to it from the start.
