This paper describes a system for exploring and selecting entries from a music database through a visualization interface. The system is designed for deployment in situations in which the user's attention is a tightly limited resource. The system combines research topics in intelligent user interfaces, visualization techniques, and cognitive modeling. Informal evaluation of the system has given us useful insights into the design tradeoffs that developers may face when building visual interfaces for off-the-desktop applications.
