Curiosity and wonder

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 09.56.12

Every true cyclist knows there’s music in their machine. The click of cleat into pedal, the whirring chain, the hum of tyres on tarmac, the companionable creaks of a well-loaded pannier rack, the ping of an upturned twig striking a spinning spoke.

Composer Johnnyrandom makes beautiful music using everyday objects – in the case of his next single, Bespoken – which would be a great theme tune for this event – he’s chosen bicycle components.

The results are playful and oddly uplifting. We hope to include some of this in the forthcoming Boneshaker podcasts – watch this space.
