Writing music used to take years of experience, but not anymore. With MySong, a Microsoft Research Project, you can sing into a microphone and the software will automatically generates instrumental accompaniment for your song. As you sing, MySong chooses chords to match your melody, so you can write musical compositions, even if you don't have formal musical training. The technology was created by Ian Simon from University of Washington in collaboration with Dan Morris and Summit Basu from Microsoft Research and it is still under development, so you can't play with it just yet. However, you can visit the MySong web site and watch a video of the software in action. (via istartedsomething)
