The Melody Triangle is a fun, easy to use app that lets you (and a clever bit of artificial intelligence) make your own music on your mobile phone. By simply dragging tokens around the Triangle on screen, different melodies are composed. Choose between piano, drums and bass, as well as different rhythms, and combine these to make your own songs! You can share your favourite settings, and listen to the music that other users of the app, anywhere in the world, have been making.

This app is also a research tool to help understand the relationship between mathematics and music. You, (yes you!) can help this research simply by using the app to make music, and whenever you hear something that you like, press the ‘like’ button! At melodytriangle.eecs.qmul.ac.uk you can see other user’s ‘likes’ and league tables of most liked songs, can you make it to the top of the charts?

You don’t need to be a musician to make good music! Why not try it today?
