musique concrete

I thought this project (Musique Concrete) by Simon Morris was a nice mix of psychogeography, performance, and interactivity. The skateboard adds a really interesting performative element, merging musical and sports live performance in a way I haven't really seen before. I'd really like to have this for my daily commute.

This is very cool. Although it's interesting that the sounds are generated which, now that I've read about the distinctions, seems to align more with Elektronische Musik than Musique Concrete. Not that a microphone on a skateboard would produce a more interesting noise, but I'm very curious about the reasons behind the sounds chosen. They seem arbitrary and I wasn't able to find anything on the site.
