Part of Capital Headphone’s ‘Make The City Sound Better’ campaign, Yuri Suzuki Design Studio transformed the iconic London Taxi into a moving sound sculpture.

Microphones attached to the taxi records surrounding noises, such as, sirens, construction work and traffic. Software immediately converts the sound into a unique piece of music played back via 67 speakers built into the taxi.

The taxi toured London’s streets delivering Londoners with a melodious alternative sound to ‘city noise’.
