Can the city become a symphony? Electric cars are increasingly using synthesised sounds in order to mimic the traditional noise of the internal combustion engine. I explore an alternative in which the sound that the cars generate changes according to its relationship to other road users and the environment.
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, creating soundscapes that are unique to the place and time. The roadside becomes a new context for sound – the city is the score.

London – Eine Stadt will hoch hinaus.



Aus dem Youtube-Text:

Das größte Geheimnis des Internets:
Das Beispiel von Großbritanniens Hauptstadt London zeigt, dass die Zukunft der Städte — vor allem der Großstädte — vertikal sein wird. Das Anwachsen der Stadtbevölkerung, die Zunahme der Single-Haushalte und eine intensive Immobilienspekulation lassen den Mangel an bezahlbarem Wohnraum immer deutlicher werden. Der Bau neuer Wohnungen ist notwendig. Doch eine ungehemmte Ausdehnung in der Fläche, wie es früher blich war, ist heute nicht mehr möglich. Da bleibt nur der Bau in die Höhe.

A shoot on the South Bank in London with the 5D Mark III and Iscorama 36. The anamorphic was paired with a cheap Nikon E-series 50mm F1.8 pancake lens. Anamorphic lenses like it rough and cheap!
I’ve had a real breakthrough with the 5D Mark III on this shoot.
Full details at EOSHD here:

Music – Lana Del Rey, Born To Die
UPDATE 1: Recommend a good screen for this. If you have crushed shadows and lacklustre colour it is time to get an Apple Cinema Display!!
UPDATE 2: This version is sharpened in post with the Premiere Pro CS5.5 Unsharp Mask at 60, radius 1. Seems to be a sweet spot.
