The Sound Taxi Converts the Noise of London into Music in Real-Time
The Sound Taxi was built to promote AIAIAIs newest headphones — which promise to "make the city sound better." The unique vehicle is equipped with microphones that record its surrounding noise. As it makes its way through the streets of London, a specially designed software program inside the vehicle converts the noise into unique music in real-time. Passersby hear the music via the 67 speakers built into the entire car body and the big Indian horns mounted on top of the taxi's roof. Passengers of the sound taxi could tune-in to the converted sounds via headphones installed inside of the vehicle. The creators teamed with London-based sound artist Yuri Suzuki to make it all possible.
