A new way to compose music
Hyperscore sets free musical creativity
Software that empowers anyone to compose music, invented by highly skilled musicians, designers, and software engineers at the M.I.T. Media Lab.
Compose in just 3 simple steps
Construct a motive by graphically placing teardrops
The motive is transposed according to the rules of western musical harmony
Use the harmony line to add regions of tension, suspense, or resolution
Hyperscore is perfect for schools, workshops, and personal use
The single coolest thing to happen to music ever.
— Thomas O’Hara, 12, of West Genesee Middle School
The program was an instant hit with all of my middle school students… I was amazed at the interest my students showed.
— Kevin Coyne, a public school music teacher in Waltham, MA
I want to thank you for the wonderful gift you have given the world.
— Roy Corders
