“‘Turntable Rider’ is an add-on kit that converts bicycles into a DJ-ing console. The prototype was designed for Cogoo Bike Sharing Company by interaction artist Toshiyuki Sugai as a way of encouraging bike sharing efforts in Japan, where high rates of bicycle use have LED to congested bike parking areas near public transit.
With sticks that attach to the rims, the bike’s wheels become a kind of moving jog dial, the handbrakes become sound pads and a crossfader is affixed to the handlebars. In the demo video, pro BMX rider Kotaro Tanaka live-plays a remix of the classic japanese song ‘Sakura’, using sounds by DJ Baku. The pair will also perform at Tokyo’s Kaikoo Popwave Festival 2012.”
