Johnnyrandom’s Bespoken Jan 21, 2014

I found this experimental project to be pretty rad, mostly because I love how the experience of riding a bike as a kid can resonate through to your adult life and influence your work.

“Composer Johnnyrandom breaks new ground with musical compositions made exclusively from everyday objects. His debut single, “Bespoken”, explores the full potential of sounds generated from bicycles and their components, transcending the role of traditional instrumentation as the accepted method for creating beautiful and thought-provoking music. The following video gives a glimpse into the creative process behind this unique composition.”

      Zappa fans might be surprised to know how far back people have been making music with bicycles. Samuel Goss was rocking one in 1899! http://www.google.com/patents/US634887
