Soundtrack created in real-time by NYC Taxi Cabs

Not using Live for this, but thought I would share it anyway ;) Hope to have some free sounds to download soon!

Junction is a sound sculpture generated in real-time by thousands of New York City taxi cabs. Through the use of publicly available live footage from New York's Traffic Management Center, Junction tracks the movements of taxis in some of the city's busiest intersections. It uses their position, velocity and overall density to synthesize sounds. The onlooker gains a feeling of omniscience, as if "watching from above", while every tracked taxi's indeterministic movements become part of a larger symphony.
