Amsterdam, a pervasive pulse in motionNoise Challenge #1: The Pulse

As an inhabitant of Amsterdam you normally do not hear it anymore but if you listen carefully there is one ubiquitous and pervasive sound in Amsterdam. It comes from the nearly 500,000 cyclists who are on the road in the city every day.

An extremely dynamic background noise made by a mechanical horde of creaking, squeaking, buzzing and sometimes ringing vehicles, moving together in a swarming motion.
