Sound for a passing audience

 In 2015, Animals March, London

speaker test

Part of the research to make Animals March was to find the best position for speakers prioritising passer-by listening over rider’s. Normal sonic bike riding has the speakers angled at the riders ears creating complete immersion. Action bike requires the sound from the bike to be heard most clearly by the passer-by.  So we turn speakers around on the bikes, riding them around the park clattering, growling and howling insects, cheetahs and hyenas. Interestingly, speakers turned upside down and forwards, (see yellow speaker position above) creates best result. More interestingly is that it makes one of the most enjoyable sonic bike ride evenings in a while.
