New York Subway Map (As A Musical Instrument)

I loved the subway, as much as I loved the London Underground. When younger, like Julie Burchill, I used to say that my favourite artist was Harry Beck.

Conductor: from Alexander Chen on Vimeo.

At, Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.
