Speaking of Abbey Road...

Word is Kanye West will release a live, orchestrated version of his critically acclaimed album Late Registration. The CD/DVD, which drops on April 24, is aptly titled Late Orchestration: Live at Abbey Road Studios.

"The diagrams in The Shape of Song display musical form as a sequence of translucent arches. Each arch connects two repeated, identical passages of a composition. By using repeated passages as signposts, the diagram illustrates the deep structure of the composition."

It's pretty cool. Select a song from the left or upload your own.
