Create music inspired by over 100 world instruments
Have you ever played the Veena from India or the Dizi from China or the Mbria from Zimbabwe?
Choose one of over 100 instruments from around the world you’d like to play and MusicLM will generate a 20 second sound clip.
What’s more you can add an adjective to your prompt to shape the results such as ‘moody’, ‘happy’, or ‘romantic’. Or because it's the season you could add the terms ‘merry’ or ‘joyful’ to compose a festive jingle. Then it is over to you to play and create with the sound clip choosing between different modes from “Ambient” to “Beat” to “Pitch” to explore different sound effects.
Try the Sequencer
Select the Advanced mode to open up a sequencer and layer and loop up to four instruments.
Get inspired with these festive jingles created with Instrument Playground and then create your own
The festive season is fast approaching, so we’ve created these festive jingles for your inspiration.
“Chime Chime Ya” is a classic jingley composition inspired by festive chimes.
"Ho Ho Ho" is an ode to Santa Claus layering “festive church bells” and “heavenly gongs.”
A starting point for this experiment was exploring a playful interface based on Music LM that inspires creativity and discovery of instruments from around the world, for everyone. It continues Google Arts & Culture’s commitment to explore new ways to aid cultural learning and discovery. Start your journey by discovering 10 lesser known instruments from around the world, and learn more about traditional instruments and music from India, Korea, Japan, or Brazil.
