Sounds of Transport

Umut Karakulak

The railway system in Tokyo can be overwhelming and scary at first sight. Speaking from experience, this is especially true when a foreigner visits for the first time.

But I believe there is harmony, and this application aims to show that by creating music through the movement of everyday transportation.

Users can freely place and adjust trigger functions onto a map, once a train intersects through its boundaries, the trigger simply plays a sound. A variety of triggers act differently, and the sound it makes can be configured. Train lines can also be filtered, simulated for a specific time and results can be saved.

With this, users can create unique melodies using the interaction between public transportation and custom triggers.
