Quiet Rithmic Music

Admittedly, it’s a little anti-climactic, but hey, it’s pretty rad too. The bike, aside from the less appealing creaks, pops and clicks we’d rather NOT hear, also makes enough sound to be considered ambient music to some. Created by Leonardo Ulian, this installation picks up the quieter and sometimes inaudible sounds emanating from your ride and amplifies them into something of a soundtrack of background noise. It sure beats the sound of air escaping from your tire or that persistent clicking coming from…WHERE exactly is that thing coming from again? Press play and nod your head to the beat.
