Technologies of composition

While we are working with technologies that allow composing (Audacity, GarageBand, notation software) the industry is also working on new technologies that allow and support composing.

Microsoft has a new technology, “My Song” which appears to be in a demo/beta phase. The program will create plausible chords to a melody sung by the user. Enjoy the demo video here:

Of course, there’s positive and negative possibilities within this technology, but I thought it novel/interesting enough to merit sharing.
