Experimenting in Harmony


Subhadra M., Staff Writer

     What do you think of music as? Is it something to listen to or sing along with? Well, it could really be anything. You can play around with this versatile subject in the Chrome Music Lab! This is one of Google Chrome’s many hidden features. It allows you to create your own songs and even play with an (actually kind of fun) spectrogram!

     Well, you may ask what a spectrogram is, or what the Kandinsky feature even does. The best way to figure it out is to explore. If you’re seriously wondering, though, a spectrogram visually represents the frequency of a certain noise. You can sing into the spectrogram or watch it move as an instrument plays. Meanwhile, Kandinsky lets you draw, and then that drawing is turned into a note. There are multiple other things you can do, as well, ranging from creating chords to making your own rhythms!
