About CantoVario

CantoVario enables users to take songs and mash them up to create something new and perhaps unexpected.

Backstory: CantoVario had its origins as an MIT doctoral thesis (“Musical Variations from a Chaotic Mapping”) and has been featured in The Boston Globe and in Science. Olin College of Engineering and the MIT Venture Mentoring Service have helped guide and support this work. In 2019 CantoVario was selected for the National Teams Innovation Corps (I-Corps) sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). In 2020, NSF awarded this project a “Partnerships for Innovation-Technology Transfer” grant to fund research and development as CantoVario moves from prototype to product.
