What doodle

In that

since the guys from Google, together withGoogle Magenta and Google PAIR teams created their first interactive Doodle with artificial intelligence. It is a game in which the player is asked to create a melody in two measures. The AI ​​will analyze your “composition” and, based on the composer’s harmonies, create music in his style. To do this, we had to teach artificial intelligence to recognize 306 different Bach choral harmonies.

How an interactive Doodle with Bach was created

short biography

Johann Sebastian Bach was born on March 21, 1685(according to the old Julian calendar) in the Thuringian city of Eisenach, Germany. In 1703, after graduating from the gymnasium in Lüneburg, Johann Bach got a job as a court musician in the chapel of the Weimar Duke Johann Ernst. Bach played the violin for six months and gained his first popularity as a performer. But he soon got tired of it and gave it up in order to become a court organist at the Church of St. Boniface in the city of Arnstadt. This is where the composer's professional career began.
