Music-Synchronized Composing

Wu-Hsi Li Ho-Hsiang Wu

Musicpainter is a collaborative graphical composing environment created by Wu-Hsi where novice users can easily create and share music. In this project, we sync the composing environment with preloaded music so users can play along with their favorite tracks. Echo Nest API is used to analyze the key and beat information of the original track, and the time line of user's music creation is tuned and synchronized accordingly. The preloaded music creates the composing context for users to interacte with.
