MTA.me: Google Engineer Turns Subway Lines Into Musical Instruments

Alexander Chen used HTML5 and Massimo Vignelli's famous subway map to turn NYC's mass transit system into a playable musical instrument.

Manhattan denizens sometimes describe the sounds of the subway as the city's incidental music. Now programmer/designer Alexander Chen has created a more soothing version with MTA.me, an interactive NYC subway map-turned-musical-instrument that uses transit lines as its strings.

That's a great Audio! I do like traveling in the subway but only when its not overcrowded. I prefer using a New York bus company to commute as it only allows a certain number of people so you don't have someone standing over you while you travel.
