Listen to this radio documentary: Now everyone can write a song

348-ben-title-image

A few weeks ago, my CBC Radio co-worker Ben Shannon asked me if I wanted to be a subject in a radio documentary he was working on about music making apps. The question he wanted to answer: Can someone with limited musical training (e.g. me) compose a song using only a few phone apps?

As someone who’s used to being the interviewer, it was strange to be on the other side. But it turned out to be relatively painless, and I had a great time playing around with some of the nifty apps he showed me.

It aired last weekend on CBC Radio’s Spark. And, of course, with Ben being on the digital team, he put together an online version, featuring some of his original graphics and an animation. You can check out the full story over at the Spark website (and find out how well I did on my task).

Let me know what you think!
