BANGARANG BOOMERANG

 
BangarangBoomerang
 
Bangarang Boomerang is Paul Lamere’s latest creation from the Echo Nest. In his blog post, Paul describes it as: “My latest music hack is Bangarang Boomerang. It is a web app (runs in Chrome or the latest Safari), that lets you ‘drive’ the Skrillex song. You can freeze-frame the song on a beat, you can make the song go backwards beat by beat, you can advance through the song at double time, or triple time, and set bookmarks to let you easily jump to different sections of the song. It is a rather fun app that lets you feel like a musician, even if you have very little musical talent. ”

BOHEMIAN RHAPSICHORD

 

 
Bohemian Rhapsichord is a web app that turns the song Bohemian Rhapsody into a musical instrument. It uses TheEcho Nest analyzer to break the song into segments of quasi-stable musical events. It then shows these as an array of colored tiles (where the colors are based on timbre) that you can interact with like a musical instrument.
If you click on a tile, you play that portion of the song (or hold down shift or control and play tiles just by mousing over them). You can bind different segments to keys letting you play the ‘instrument’ with your keyboard too (See the FAQ for all the details). You can re-sort the tiles based on a few criteria (sequential order, by loudness, duration or by similarity to the last played note). It is a fun way to make music based on one of the best songs in the world. The app makes use of the very new (and not always the most stable) web audio API. Currently, the only browser that I know that supports the web audio API is Chrome.
