This week we are challenging you to code the most repetitive song ever using for-loops.  Have you had the words of a song stuck in your head all day?  If you listen to Ciara’s SET  song, you will notice how she repeats “On My Set” over and over again to draw in the listener.  Now it’s your turn to find some beats to repeat in your song.  However, instead of copying and pasting your code, you are going to use for loops. The for-loop instructs the computer to execute a section of code repeatedly, without having to rewrite the code over and over again.

  • The remix must be a minimum of 20 seconds but less than 2 minutes

  • It must include at least one stem from Common or Ciara

  • It must include one for-loop to add repetition to your song

  • You should use other functions such as fitMedia (), setEffect () or makeBeat to compose your song.
