Yup, blame the site.

(I got a distinction for my Grade VIII music theory back in 1977 and some of it stuck.)

It sounds bloody awful because it's like putting a one legged cat  with no sense of rhythm on a keyboard and getting it to jump around a bit, but only on the white notes, but not staying nicely in the key of C, which could make it sounds OK. But doesn't. I could explain but I won't.

There's no time signature (no number of beats to the bar) and the random semi-quavers just make it sound as if you've tripped up a bit. Not your fault at all.

I bet I could set your words to music and make them sound lovely, but I would take longer than the website.

I wrote a (dreadful) poem earlier this week for a Valentine-themed mailshot. Wondered whether the music generator would pick up the rhythm. It didn't. If anything, the music is less appealing than the poem.

Came across this weird site that takes any paragraph of text and turns it into music. I tried out some copy I've been working on today and it sounded bloody awful. I'm blaming the site, obviously.
