Dave Luebbert brought his Mac to the geek dinner we held on Thursday night (about 40 people showed up). Why did he do that? So he could compose a song right in front of me during the geek dinner.

Hey, yesterday was Mozart’s birthday so this is fitting.

Anyway, what is SongTrellis. It’s a program that looks like a sheet of music. Dave was able to use it to draw out notes and play them back. Or, he could have the computer come up with some notes of its own and he could play them back, delete them if not appropriate, try again. Manually manipulate them. I could see how, if in the hands of someone with musical talent, this could be used to build music very quickly.

Yet another digital lifestyle story. Sorry, this one is for the Mac only. But then if you knew Dave you’d know that to be the case (he was on the first Word for Macintosh teams at Microsoft and has since left Microsoft to work on stuff like SongTrellis).

Very cool app! I’m gonna get Patrick (my 12-year-old son) to try it out. In free beta now, but he expects to charge less than $100 for the completed software.

Oh, and Patrick says thanks to the Mac/Office team who sent him a copy of Mac Office and Virtual PC for his Mac. He’s sitting on the couch right now playing with Windows on his Mac. Ahh, maybe he’ll come back around to the dark side of the force!
