Create Your Own Background Music

 Have a little fun creating endless loops of your very own ride music... quickly and easily!

Click on or drag your cursor across the squares of this grid and sit back and listen. Click any square again to turn it off. To reset the board, refresh this page. (Sorry, not all mobile users can enjoy this toy).

I saw this and immediately thought of old EPCOT Center soundtracks. Also, this is something CommuniCore or maybe Image Works could have had that we would have all loved. Meanwhile the current CommuniCore, errr Innoventions, is plenty busy teaching us about velcro and trash removal and last year's video games, um so that's good. But a wall with something like this would have caught curious 1980s attention.

That is awesome! That would be a great replacement for Rocking Robots in Innovations, think of what you could do with this technology with different instruments on different screens. Based on some quick plays, the horizontal bars are tone, low at the bottom to high at the top, with the vertical bars being time.

Very cool! "Where does he get such wonderful toys?"

You realize that with this, you've eliminated any sort of productivity I've had in my life up to this point.

I'm glad we can help.

Wow, I know what my name REALLY sounds like now! Bonus points goes to whoever can figure out the shape that does "It's a great big beautiful tomorrow". He he.

@Sam Towler: I figured out how to do it, though it does have to be sped up quite a bit to fit on the grid. Even then the only part I can fit is the title. Too bad there's no place to post it.

Ah! How great! It really does remind me of old EPCOT Center BGMs. Haven't tried to replicate any songs yet, but I've had fun just seeing what certain WDW-themed pictures "sound" like. Oddly enough, if I heard the loops these images generated I would totally buy them as old-school musical stings from the parks...

how do you record the music

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterConor Grant

Heeeey, I totally relate this to Iwai's tenori-on music device. Its philosophy allows non-musicians to create their own compositions. Electroplankton [2005 DS game] runs along these lines, too. Fun stuff, yo.
