    Google Doodle: JS Bach and AI

    Today's Google doodle is a celebration of the work of classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750).

    It's an interactive one. It has a simple musical-node editor where one can enter a few bars of melody, and the software will work out three additional melodylike parts to harmonize with it. It uses an AI model that was trained on many of JSB's works, so it can come up with a plausible imitation of what JSB himself might have done.

    In the background is some cutesy 3D models showing JSB playing a violin, a pipe organ, and a piano or harpsichord.

    There are some additional goodies that you can get by clicking on various objects in the scene.

    I thought of a simple melody, first wandering off, then returning home:

    Key: G major
    Time: 4/4

    G4
