“Bespoken” by Johnnyrandom – The Bicycle As Musical Instrument


After seeing guns, garbage and typewriters used to make musical instruments, artist Johnnyrandom’s new release “Bespoken” comes as no surprise; he puts a new spin on tuning your bike.

It’s safe to say a majority of us have ridden a bicycle before and can easily recognize the associated sounds. The artist harvested these familiar noises by striking, plucking and bowing the uniquely well-balanced, adjustable and metallic parts of a bicycle, making for a surprisingly sweet-sounding musical instrument.

In the teaser track, the artist describes how and why he chose the bicycle as his music vehicle. Download the whole shebang from iTunes.
