Accordion Articulated Bus

The bellows on either side of this articulated bus bas air- capture and pump chambers, which pressurize the instrument. Notes can be a pre-selected song, random note pushes by crowds entering onto the keyed steps, or just horrid cartoony "I've been flattened by a piano and now walk like an accordion" sounds.

       Better than an idea involving bagpipes, but only just.

       Yes to bagpipe bus version, with 8th inside it in a cage, a long and torturous journey ahead consisting of many bends and turns.

       I think the bus should (passively) control the sound, not songs or keys.
2 independent bellows (left side, right side, obvs), connected to 6 reeds; left bellows only, right bellows only, both piped together, and all sets through a pair of non- return valves to have a different note on blow and suck.
So you would get different chords for acceleration, deceleration, left turn, right turn (and possibly changes for different radii, depending on exact set-up...).
