“Everyone loves music and wants to be creative, but many people don’t have an outlet to do it. We wanted to make it as easy and accessible and forgiving as possible, so that anyone could make music.”
Zack Sulsky ’13, a self-proclaimed “music theory nerd” and music major here at Wesleyan, has recently used his thorough understanding of music to create a song-making app, Sketch-a-Song. Last summer, Zack collaborated with a handful of high school buddies from his hometown of Denver, Colorado, to design the app. The app, available on both Android and iOS, is designed for amateur musicians. The user places notes on the screen, creating a looped song with the option of then sending their new tune to a friend for collaboration. With a number of instruments to choose from, the final product may even be good enough to download, which the app allows users to do.
