Today's Google doodle is J.S. Bach and you can write your own piece (with the help of AI). Kinda cool. Check it out.

Was just coming here to mention that! I tried it out with the opening eight notes for Scarborough Fair (what can I say, it was the first thing that came to mind) and it spat out the following: https://g.co/doodle/y4ek3c

I think it's pretty cool! You can run your melody through the algorithm a number of different times and get different results/styles, which is also kinda fun.

I saw him on the train this morning. Still looks good for his age!

I did a fairly good melody but the harmonies ti came up with were awful - I had them redo it to no avail. Ah well, maybe I'll just write the rest myself wink

This was interesting, I liked the video. Did you find the Easter egg to make a rock composition? laugh

It must come in different areas at different times. It kicked in today (the 22nd) here in Canada. Some of the "doodles" were rather dissonant or iffy. I even put in the start of the Pachelbel Canon, and that one came out surprisingly weird.

You can get modal Mary Had a Little Lamb (their pre-composed tune) by changing the key signature. The noteheads stay on the same lines and spaces, and the harmonies get pretty wonky.

The doodle is still up today for me. I think in the past they've kept certain ones up for a few days, which makes sense for something as complex as the Bach-a-Doodle.
