Every summer there is one song that explodes and is played everywhere. From the Macarena, to Call Me Maybe to last year’s Old Town Road, all of these songs were not just top hits on the radio but also upbeat with a catchy hook. Songs of the summer make you want to dance, sing, and most importantly  reflect a message of that year.  This summer of Coronavirus will be different—but how will this effect the song of the summer.   Be creative and use your knowledge of coding and EarSketch to create the “Song of the Summer 2020.”  

  • The remix must be a minimum of 30 seconds but less than 3 minutes

  • The song should demonstrate your knowledge of Earsketch through using loops, custom functions, fitMedia(), makeBeat(), setEffect(), and uploaded sounds

  • You can use conditionals (optionals) to allow for some user choice.
