Noises in traffic – such as car horns blaring, people shouting – may cause headache. These irritating sounds may spoil your mode early in the morning. Wouldn’t that be a great if these sounds turns into a music? An artist named Marc De Pape has made a special sensor called “The Chime” that does exactly the same thing. It picks up ambient noises and then transforms those noises into music.
The Chime is a collection of 18 sensors measuring 27 parameters assembled to poetically translate the impulses and flows of the everyday city into sound. When the sensors detect something approaching, the device tinkles with xylophone notes. If the sensors detect something is moving away, it swells with the sound of strings. If explained in simple language, the sensors gulp the street sounds and later exert music. Here ‘s a video where Chime picks up ambient noises and then transforms those noises into music.
