Album Visualized as Spectrogram

I put all the tracks on my album through spectrogram software to visualize the audio, then put the images together with IrfanView. They are all shown to the same scale, so that the width of the images is proportional to the length of the tracks (the shortest tracks are 2:00 minutes and the longest are 6:00 minutes). The visualization shows the various forms of symmetry – or lack of it – in the structure of the tracks and in their arrangement within the album as a whole. Click on the image to enlarge.

Settings used for the spectrogram: Hann window, 4096 samples, 75% overlap. Scale: dBV, logarithmic frequency plot, 0-20kHz.
