Google’s Latest Chrome Experiment Lets Anyone Write Music
Song Maker provides a simple and enjoyable way for people to create unique musical melodies
Google Chrome recently launched Song Maker, a Chrome Experiment that allows even the most amateur musician the chance to create fun and innovative melodies. Song Maker comes as a part of Chrome Music Lab, a website that focuses on trying to make learning music enjoyable and feasible for everyone.
With Song Maker, users simply choose sounds that they would like to create and add them to spaces on the grid. Each grid space corresponds to a different pitch, with higher pitches at the top of the grid and lower pitches at the bottom. Once they are satisfied with how their grid looks, users are free to test out how their music sounds, and even try different styles like synth, marimba and piano, amongst others. Also, each note on the chart has a corresponding color so musicians can create vibrant and cool-looking artistic grids.
Once finished, users are free to share their musical creations with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
