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.
