Close your eyes and imagine a multimedia psychedelic bike ride, everything modulated by pedaling. Pedal faster – and tempo increases; pedal slowly or brake, and it all slows down. The rhythms, seemingly drums and bass — are not quite electronic or acoustic. Why? Because every sound originated from a bicycle: sounds of the city and of nature, bass tones from the tires (is this what burning rubber sounds like?) and other sounds, derived from metal, moving gears, chains, and other parts of the bicycle transformed into living art, presented as interactive performance in front of your very eyes.
