Busphony

A synthesizer powered by the busses of Reykjavik.

Busphony is a bus powered syntheziser with a map interface, 81 pads are overlaid on a map of the city of Reykjavik. Each pad triggers a synthesizer note (you can try it out by hovering above the pads).

Every 15 seconds Busphony fetches the current position of the buses in busroutes selected by the user, the location of each bus is then shown on the map and the corresponding synth pad/note is triggered.

How does it work

The synthesizer uses the web audio api the map is powered by the Google Maps api, bus positioning is fetched from Apis.is.

How to use

Compile the coffeescript into a javascript file:

coffee -cj busphony.js synth.coffee map.coffee bus.coffee main.coffee

Stick the html and javascript on a webserver and open in a browser.

Demo

Due to changes in the Bus.is and Google Maps apis a demo is unfortunately no longer available.
