This Looking Outwards, I decided to focus on what is probably the funniest use of computer music ever: autorap.
The autorap app is by Smule, a company that makes mobile apps and is located in San Francisco. It was founded in 2008, by Jeff Smith and Ge Wang, who is a Stanford Ass. Professor. The idea is that you can record yourself speaking/singing/whatever, and it will turn that recording into “”rap.”” I use this term loosely. It really just autotunes whatever you record, but it’s honestly hilarious.
Here’s a video of Ge Wang testing the app, which I highly recommend everyone watch because again, it’s hilarious:
They also have a very pretty graphic moving in the background when you record, which I thought was a nice touch.
