Project: Musical Crosswalks
Improve safety and attention with music that synchronize with the klicking in the sound boxes by pedestrian crossing - and add some fun as well. The project was installed in central Stockhholm as a part of he cityt hosting the Eurovision final in may 2016.
When light is red, a 60 bpm version of Loreen´s "Euphoria" is heard. When light is green, a 600 bpm version of Mans Zelmerlofs "Hearoes" is heard. Everything is played in sync with the sounds that visually impared need to safely cross the street. The music played is arranged only using the very clicksound that normally comes from the boxes.
