Tom Merritt gets a theme song via the Lifehouse Project

A new online service will compose a musical theme just for you.

Tom Merritt does a lot of podcasting, so clearly he needs his own personal musical theme. If you do too, check out The Lifehouse Project's Method Music. Developed "under the patronage of Pete Townshend," songwriter and guitarist for The Who, the online service collects your voice, a noise you make, and a rhythm you tap out, and then magically creates from these inputs a brief melody that is supposed to capture the spirit of your inputs without simply just mashing them together.

The service didn't work for me, but it liked Tom. He got a lilting, spacey melody out of Method Music, quite unlike the driving guitar chords that anchor his daily Buzz out Loud podcast. I never knew he had such a soft side.
