Symphonic Scene

From alto saxophones to zithers, this graphic orchestra could inspire some serious air conducting. Combining aspects of the Hornbostel-Sachs system—the standard for instrument classification introduced in 1914—with an updated, intuitive approach to sorting sonic stuff, the easy-to-follow diagram includes over 540 musical instruments. The beautifully illustrated symphonic family tree resonates with rich detail and intriguing information. Designed by Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan in Brooklyn, New York.

Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan strive to "connect the dots" by compiling complicated data sets on a given topic of interest and then devising a graphic way to display it beautifully. They met while working at a publishing company, where Ben was a designer and Patrick was an editor. Both collaborated with authors to bring ideas to the printed page, but they had yet to work on anything that was fully their own. Their independent products combine deep research with beautiful design to take the head-spinning data of today's world and transform it into something clean, elegant, and comprehensive.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Musical Instruments Chart:

    Gave it to a recent college grad going into music education for use in her new classroom. It is very cute and I believe it will help help her spark her students' interests in new and interesting instruments.
