A New App Allows Users to Compose Music by Drawing
A new app uses an algorithm that calculates a projection of a melody on a 2D plane and allows converting drawings into Music
Melody Composer Squared was developed specifically for creating, browsing and editing melodies using their conversions to images.
The Melody Composer Squared Team is pleased to announce the official release of 1.2 version, an update to their popular music editor developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Melody Composer Squared was developed specifically for creating, browsing and editing melodies using their conversions to images. The app uses a diagram, with a coordinate system with two coordinates: one coordinate corresponds to a pitch of a musical note, and the second corresponds to a duration of a note or a pause. The method produces static images on the diagram and suitable for melodies of 4, 8, 12 and 16 bars.
Version 1.2 introduces 5 new melodies in a library and a new classic melody in the Classic section (10. Mozart. Allegro). At the moment the library contains 24 examples of drawn melodies and 10 famous classic melodies. Here are visualizations of melodies by Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bizet, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, and Pierpont. The library will be supplemented with new melodies in future updates.
The team of developers are currently working on adding color reproduction to the app, which can provide an experience from musical intervals and chords. Pavlo Karnaukhov is an author of the visualization method and algorithms. Natalia Kursa implemented the code. “The idea of color music was somewhat compromised by researchers, who had made it without a clear approach when using random experiments instead of completed results,” said Pavlo Karnaukhov, visualization author. “So our desire was to put an end to this issue by creating a well thought-out algorithm for the transformation of chords to colors.”
