Eine Kleine Fietsmusik

Create Digital Music | Ensembles, Symphonies, and Bikelophones

Over at Create Digital Music, a post last week featuring the Nutcracker Suite played entirely on bike parts (by “johnny random”) led to a whole host of bike/music mashups.

There’s Stephen Schweitzer’s Bikelophone, a Motobecane Grand Jubilee that’s given its life to music. Literally. There’s a variety of strings, spokes, and bells alongside an Electrosonic interface that simulates a Theremin, and the whole thing is wired into a mixing board.

The podcasters at The Bike Show just did an edition called “Experimental music and the bicycle”, and they’re trying to organize a performance, in conjunction with London’s Grand Depart of the Tour de France this summer, of Godfried-Willem Raes’s Second Symphony for ‘Singing Bicycles’.

And don’t miss the CD that looks like a patch kit.
