Build a City, Make a Tune

Isle of Tune  is a fun online music sequencer that lets you create songs by building a city in a SimCity-esque app.  Streets, buildings, trees, flowers and other objects can be placed on a gridded map canvas with three cars.  Each urban object can be assigned a musical note, while  the street network represents the track and the cars set the pace. As the cars drive through the streets they trigger each object’s note as it is passed and the melody is created.

The website allows users to submit their tracks and visitors can vote them up and down. Many clever, great sounding tunes have been submitted:

Black Eyed Peas – Good Night

MGMT – Kids 

Journey – Don’t Stop Believing

Lady Gaga – Poker Face 

Michael Jackson – Beat It
