GOOGLE Doodle has used Artificial Intelligence to enable users to make their own Bach-inspired song – but who is Johann Sebastian Bach? We explain who he is and what he has accomplished. Today’s Google Doodle uses AI to compose music from Johann Sebastian Bach Who was Johann Sebastian Bach? Johann Sebastian Bach is a German composer and musician from the Baroque period of classical musical in the 17th and 18th centuries. Bach, who was born on March 31, 1685, is known for compositions such as Art of Fugue, the Brandenburg Concerts and the Goldberg Variations. His Air on the G string was used in adverts for Hamlet cigars until tobacco ads were banned in 1991. Toccata and Fugue in D minor is one of his most recognisable pieces. It has been used in films numerous times, firstly in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in 1931. The opening toccata section is often associated with the horror genre. The revered organist died aged 65 in 1750. He is being celebrated on March 21 as this is the date of his birth according to the old Julian calendar. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer What is the Google Doodle? Today’s Google Doodle allows users to compose a two-measure melody of their choice – just click on the Doodle to get going. The AI model was trained on 306 of Bach’s compositions and uses machine learning to harmonise the custom tune to his signature style. Users can even do an 80s rocky style hybrid if they find the special Easter egg in the Doodle. Compose your own music with the Bach Google Doodle What is a Google Doodle? In 1998, the search engine founders Larry and Sergey drew a stick figure behind the second ‘o’ of Google as a message to show that they were out of office at the Burning Man festival and with that, Google Doodles were born. The company decided that they should decorate the logo to mark cultural moments and it soon became clear that users really enjoyed the change to the Google homepage. In that same year, a turkey was added to Thanksgiving and two pumpkins appeared as the ‘o’s for Halloween the following year. [article-rail-topic title=”MORE GOOGLE DOODLES” term_id=”9138″ posts_number=”6″ /] Now, there is a full team of doodlers, illustrators, graphic designers, animators and classically trained artists who help create what you see on those days. Google kicked off 2019 with an animated Doodle of New Year’s Eve celebrations. On January 7, Fahrelnissa Zeid’s life was celebrated with a colourful, kaleidoscopic Doodle on her 118th birthday. And on January 11, the life of the first black singer on BBC Radio, Evelyn Dove, was celebrated. Sake Dean Mahomed, who was the first to open an Indian restaurant in the UK, was also honoured with  a Google Doodle on January 15.
