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?
