Tickle the ivory (sort of) with a HTML5 Piano
HTML5, the fifth revision of the HTML standard seems to be in the news each and every week. The news could be a debate concerning its merits over Adobe Flash, or Twitter rolling out a new HTML5 web app. Regardless HTML5 is a major topic in technology circles.
As fans of music we also enjoy music-themed HTML5 projects. One such project is HTML5 Canvas Piano, described by its creator, Martijn Laarman, as:
“HTML5 Canvas Piano, is a “fully” functional piano created entirely in the browser using <canvas /> and <audio/> It can play and visualize single notes but you can also choose to play chords by selecting one from the dropdown at the top right of this page. These chords will then be played by composing them from single notes.
You can only control the first 2 octaves, the other two are purely visual.”
So, if you’ve ever wanted to learn a little piano, doing so wherever you have access to a web browser, now you can simply by clicking here.
