Hi. Welcome to Sentimentshirt.

Sentimentshirt is a side-project in which I (👋 I'm Erik) combine my passion for music with my skills in data analysis. In this project, I use machine learning to visualise music in a unique way and design t-shirts based on the results.

Youtuber Y Cubed made this beautiful video that explains how it works:

I currently use my project to design t-shirts of my memorable music moments. These are three of my favourite stories:

Paying tribute to Avicii

When Avicii died, I tried to find new meaning in his music through data analysis. The path ended in my very first Sentimentshirt. Read full story »

Origin of Sentimentshirt

I'm a data analyst by profession and passionate about music. After Avicii's death in 2018, I tried to find a new meaning in his music using my data analysis and visualization skills. The result of that research project is Sentimentshirt. You can read the full journey I've been through here.

My visuals are free to use

Music is a personal thing. So I'd like to help you explore your favourite music in this unique way. There are three options here.

Option 1: visit the download page. Here you can download the visuals I've generated for the music I like. You can use them any way you like.

Option 2: You can send me a message on LinkedIn and tell me what music album you'd like to see visualised. You can also .

Option 3: If you are a python programmer, you can give the Github repository a visit.

T-shirt stories

When I create a new design, I write story about it. Visit the blog to read my stories about the t-shirts I generated from the music of some of my favorite artists.
