Music for your drive from your drive

 
  
 
 
 
 

 
 

...the road becomes the score, the driver becomes the musician, and the music becomes the sound of the situation...

RoadMusic is a project by Sound Artist Peter Sinclair. The idea is to be done with listening to recorded music in your car and instead to have a live sonic experience in which music is created from your ride for your ride. Sensors gather data about bumps, curves, accelerations and braking while a camera analyses the visual scene. Sinclair is specifically interested in the situation of the car ride in which we are "traditionally" estranged from the audio environment through which we travel.

With RoadMusic the road becomes the score, the driver becomes the musician, and the music becomes the sound of the situation. These artistic concerns find added pertinence with the advent of electric and hybrid cars, which poses the question: what sound does an electric car make?

Versions of RoadMusic by composers Peter Sinclair, Andrea Cera, Atau Tanaka & Adam Parkinson, Marine Quiniou, Mathias Isouard, Charles Bascou
