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"

||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...).
