Music is fun! My initial inspiration came from my small cousins: I wanted to create something that was cute and happy enough for a kid to enjoy, but that also integrated sound in a design-oriented way. I wanted to sneakily insert Fourier Transforms and filters and frequency content, but still have something that appeals to kids. And thus, Song Monster was born.
Song Monster allows users to create their own world of sound, with little singing Tri-Guys who store your voice and play it back to you in different forms: among other things, you can sound like a chipmunk or a robot. But be careful, the ruler of the land, the Song Monster, likes to keep his music interesting, so if you don't keep changing your sounds, he'll gobble up all of your Tri-Guys!
1. Change your voice
Change the color of the Tri-Guys to change your voice to robot, or musical tones, or stretch or shrink them to make your voice higher or lower.
3. Avoid the Song Monster!
Keep the music changing--if you stick with one song for too long you'll face the dreaded Song Monster!
