Summer of Something 7: Music Badge

Welcome to week 7 of S.O.S.! Don’t do nothing… do something!!!

MAX REBO and his band (as folded by SF FelixSkywalker) are with us this week because it’s MUSIC WEEK!

I’ll post challenges all summer long. Complete as many as you want to earn Something badges. They’re not much but they’re… better than nothing!

Once again, the Summer of Something is sponsored by…. THE TWO-HEADED CHICKEN!



This week we’re going to make some computery music.

If you already know how or if you already play a real-life instrument, that’s cool, too! Very cool in fact!

If you haven’t done something like this before, it’s pretty easy to at least make some groovy noises if you start here: https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/Song-Maker/ 

I made a basic pattern that I liked, then I saved about 5 variations of it as WAV files. Then I looped them together. You can hear it here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/876207872

You can do yours however you like!

Another fun and easy (and weird) online sound maker is: https://experiments.withgoogle.com/ai/drum-machine/view/

To share it with the rest of the Superfolders, you can make a video out of it and post it to youtube — maybe with some dancing origami?

Or you can make a scratch program that plays your song or remix my program by adding your own sounds.

Or you can just take a screenshot and let us imagine what it sounds like.

Don’t stress out about uploading, the important thing is to MAKE THE MUSIC and have fun doing it!



HOW TO SUBMIT: There are no strict rules and NO DEADLINE. You can even do more than one. When you’ve got it, just submit it to SAM the normal way, but put SOS 2023 AND YOUR SF NAME in the title!
