Johnnyrandom makes electronica using a bike and a mic

Johnnyrandom is a San Francisco-based composer, bicycle lover, and awesome dude. He’s created what is frighteningly akin to some critically-acclaimed electronica using noises created by plucking and prodding a bicycle. No drum machines or samples; just spokes, brakes and tyres. We love it.

You can watch the video below to get a better idea of the techniques used in the making of the track. It’s quite beautiful.

You can also listen to his ‘3 minute epiphany’ on BBC Radio 6 Music here.
