The Sound of Music, Made by Bikes
The short film showcases nearly three minutes of musical entertainment made entirely by bikes. That includes chains, wheels, spokes (and their adornments), bells, wheels and the like. The result is mesmerizing, which is precisely why the film itself took first place in the Bike Shorts Film Festival held this spring in New York.
Take three minutes of your day and check out this film. The real gem is in the sounds it produces but we recommend you watch it as well. Its simple yet sleek camerawork reminds us of an updated yet undeniably old school video you might see on the likes of (and this is not meant as an insult, but rather as the utmost of compliments) retro Sesame Street. All old-school kids shows aside, it’s also very cool to see how the sounds you’re hearing were made by way of a bike and just a few props.
