A Short Film Made Using Musical Bicycle Parts
Brooklyn artist Stephen Meierding
has pulled bicycles apart to make his short film Bicycle Sounds. The video takes its soundtrack from noises made by bicycle wheels, spokes, chains, gears and bells. Each bike part creates a different sound, which combined create an interesting rhythm. The film's progression shows the wheels spinning faster, the sound and the visuals getting a little heavier and slightly more manic, while playing cards attached to the spokes with pegs create visual stimulation.
Meidering premiered the film at the recent Bike Shorts film festival in New York, where it took out the top prize.
