What is a bicycle opera? Using speakers, a digitally programmed score, a computer and a GPS receiver, sonic bicycles pick up sounds and create musical compositions dependent on the path and direction chosen by their riders. “2nd Ward - A Bicycle Opera/ 2° Barrio - Una Ópera en Bicicleta” is a work for sonic bicycles commissioned and produced by Nameless Sound in 2014. Under the direction of UK sound artist Kaffe Matthews, the piece was made in collaboration with the Bicrophonic Research Institute, Vampire Squid Labs, East End residents, writers, musicians, children, programmers and engineers.
