Piano playing under the bridges of Oxford

hinksey bridgeSomething from my hometown of Oxford, submitted by Oxford-based musician Malcolm Atkins. The road bridge by Hinksey in Oxford, which has the busy Oxford bypass above it, has some interesting sonic characteristics, producing a rhythmic sound when cars pass overhead that you don’t get anywhere else in the city. An interesting sound in and of itself, and for the remixed version, Malcolm’s added one of his piano improvisations over the top, reacting to the sound and creating a new musical piece as a result.
