Sound Taxi: Making London sound better
The vehicle samples the noises of London and turns them into music.
The Danish headphone designers AIAIAI and Yuri Suzuki, designer in residence at the London Design Museum, have collaborated on a 'sound taxi' that turns ambient London sound into music.
The black cab has taken a tour across London over the last two days, collecting ambient sounds.
The taxi is equipped with microphones and huge speakers, which record the noises of London and emit the resulting music. Here is a sample:
The resulting tracks will soon be available on www.makethecitysoundbetter.
