That black London cab that you see here turns the hustle and bustle of London into music. In other words it turns the audio chaos of a city in beautiful sounds. The Sound Taxi toured London last week in fact. It collects ambient sound pollution with a roof-mounted mic, then recycles it through production software and pumps out real-time mixes on those speakers.
This vehicle is a collaboration between headphone company AiAiAi and Yuri Suzuki, with Mark McKeague providing the back-end tech that turns the sounds into tracks.
To hear the music check out the Make The City Sound Better website. I wonder if they accidentally captured the sound of a TARDIS materializing and what kind of music that adds to the mix.
