The Sound Taxi is equipped with microphones that record its surrounding noise. As it makes it’s way through the streets of London, a specially designed software program inside the vehicle converts the noise into unique music in real-time. Passersby will hear the music via the 67 speakers built into the entire car body and the big, shiny Indian horns mounted on top of the taxi’s roof. Finally, the passengers of the sound taxi can tune-in to the converted sounds via headphones installed inside of the vehicle.
Future Sound is a short documentary that looks into a small cross section of London’s forward-thinking underground dance music scene, exploring some of the things that define and affect it as it moves into a new age of digital innovation.
Featuring interviews with Roska, Scratcha DVA, Blackdown, Mark Fisher, and Lisa Blanning, plus footage from a live SBTRKT DJ set.
