Dear Hugh,

this is a great point! I it will make a great introduction, we were planning on directly jumping in an showing the different types of visualisation support and options. 

And the example is really nice as well. As already mentioned, we are trying to stick to the music domain but it is definitively important to have a number of examples and the british museum one is really good.
