Make your own little songs about raindrops
June 4, 2009 4:35 PM   Subscribe

Lullatone are a half-Japanese, half-American duo based in Japan who make music that can probably best be described as twee folktronica; a recent EP of theirs is titled "Little Songs About Raindrops". And now, you can make your own with their Raindrop Melody Maker Flash web toy, which looks a bit like a pastel-coloured Tenori-On:

That Melody Maker is pretty fantastic. I do wish that flash apps could output higher quality audio, so I could record my little melodies for future listening.

If I ever do anything which can be "best described" with the phrase "twee folktronica," you guys will let me know, right?

(That said, I like this)

a recent EP of theirs

Technically it's a full-length, and came out in 2004. (They've done a lot of amazing stuff since!)

I'm really glad it's raining here now.

Kinda surprised the metronome indicates an extremely slow 3/4 bar..

This is great! Reminds me of Brian Eno's iPhone app.

Nifty music, neat Flash gizmo, great post, but 'folktronica'? There's gotta be a better name.
