Spreading cheery winter holiday spirit using bicycle sounds, Flip Baber, aka Johnnyrandom, produced a musical composition for Specialized Bicycle Components, exclusively from the sounds made of mountain and road bike parts. It's wild!
The song is from the Tchaikovsky score, "Nutcracker Suite", titled "Dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy"(original lyrics and music).
According to "Create Digital Music", here is the breakdown of which bicycle parts created which sound effects:
Glockenspiel - spokesRecommended Links:
Clarinet - spokes
Cello - plucked derailleur cables
Violin - plucked derailleur cables
Pizzicatos - plucked derailleur cables
Triangle - disc brake hit
Percussion - shifting, coasting, finger over turning spokes, chain pulls, braking, clipping into pedals, back-spinning, air out of tires.
