The organizations that attended Boston Music Group’s Bake-Off event introduced innovative ways to produce new music. Chrome Music Lab, the brainchild of music producers and coders, firmly believes that music production should be open to all ages. The simplistic layout and easy-to-maneuver experiments on The Chrome Labs website allows all users to create music without any difficulty or additional plug-ins.
According to their website, “Chrome Music Lab is a collection of experiments that let anyone, at any age, explore how music works. They’re collaborations between musicians and coders, all built with the freely available Web Audio API.”
The website has a series of 12 experiments, with categories ranging from rhythm to harmonics. Below are a few of Chrome Labs experiments and what they entail.
The oscillator experiment allows users to alternate between different types of oscillators to hear their frequencies. Various frequencies can be heard by dragging a user’s mouse of finger across the screen.
Chrome Labs melody maker allows users to experiment by adding and taking away different notes from a melody.
This experiment enables a user to play arpeggios in various patterns. There is a colorful wheel that showcases major and minor chords, changing the sounds of the arpeggios.
With the spectrogram experiment, users are able to visualize various spectrograms produced by different sounds. Sound options include instruments, birds, and a user’s own voice.
Kandinsky transforms art into sound. Users draw images on a white canvas and their images are converted into music.
