1. Music Teaching Tools: Harmony. Make some music using the following: chord progressions, arpeggios, chords. Write a short response discussing your experience.
I attempted some chord progressions a la “The Four Chords Song”. I don’t have very good rhythm andIi’m not sure if it’s correct but it was fun. Though I’m not very good at playing the chords, I definitely see how the melody aligns on top of them.
Start thinking of interactions: what user actions will determine which musical outcomes? What aspects of the music will evolve independently of user actions (if any)?
I started playing around with visuals to sort of illustrate the concept in my head. The program below changes position and color on the canvas according to mic input and FFT analysis.
Then there are a few animations below of how colors/size could change according to notes.
Moving forward: I really need to figure out if a computer is able to identify pitch from mic input.
Maybe this can help? https://tonescope.net/scope
