I began this project by creating a simple motif using OnlineSequencer.net. I used only the notes in the C-major chord, C, E, and G. Once I made a short piano riff, I exported it as a MIDI file and uploaded it to flat.io, a online composition web site. I then exported this as a .wav file and uploaded it to soundcloud.com, a web site for sharing sound files.
What I Learned:
I now know of a few helpful websites that assist in creating, composing and sharing music. I also learned that making a riff can be as simple as a few notes in a repetitive order.
