Musician turns the sounds a bicycle makes into a really cool song

Self-described composer creates music out of random instrument

There are musicians and then there are musical artists. A good example of the latter is a fellow by the name of Johnnyrandom.


JR, a self-described composer, traverses his local lands in search of random, everyday items that he can turn into musical instruments. And while it might seem like a complete waste of time, he’s actually quite good at it, and has an album coming out that consists of this type of music.


For his musical debut, JR has released a song called “Bespoken” which is made up of sounds generated entirely from a bicycle . . . and nothing but a bicycle. And you know what? It sounds awesome. The song captures the sounds of everything from bike spokes to noises made from the air pump, chain, and more.

From his video, JR describes his approach to the bicycle-based “Bespoken”:

…exploring the full potential of sounds generated from bicycles and their components, transcending the role of traditional instrumentation as the accepted method for creating beautiful and thought-provoking music.

Johnnyrandom’s approach in this song is probably the best combination of bicycle and music since we figured out how to strap on our Bluetooth portable speaker to a bike’s handlebars.
