City Symphonies – The future sound of traffic by Mark McKeague – DI RCA 2012

Since electric cars are increasingly using synthesised sounds in order to mimic the recognisable noise of the internal combustion engine, Mark McKeague explores an alternative in which the sound that the cars generate changes according to its relationship to other road users and the environment.

Using Processing in combination with MaxMSP, a traffic simulation is used to power the movement of vehicles through different sections of road networks in London. From a street level perspective the motions of traffic combine the sounds to create soundscapes that are unique to the place and time. The roadside becomes a new context for sound – the city is the score.
