Imagine having music themed to real life activities. A bit
like in the movies, just in real-time. As each airplane
lands and the people walk down the steps some dramatic
theme is played in high fidelity, coming from hidden
speakers along the runway.
As the kids get tired and begin picking
on each other,
some squeaking violins are heard, playing faster and
faster. Then when the older one kicks the younger one, a
loud crash is heard. When the father intervenes,
trombones begin to play.
When walking along shabby corridors, the sound of high
heels on a parquet floor is heard along with some spine
In the park, waltzes are heard, with tempo automatically
set to to the pace of the swings.
What would this visit to the restaurant be without music

||Baked - some of us sing to ourselves all the time.
||I wish I could have made it more
like the movies for you
Some pretty, Technicolor way
it's never been
I'm sorry when I kissed you, you only heard me whisper...
||This one has been baked like downtown Hiroshima.
||that simile is a bit inappropriate <sniffs>
||This town is our town
This town is so glamorous
Bet you wish you could live here
And be one of us

||Film Noir Home - smart house. Personal soundtrack
shirt / Soundtrack to your life - personal. I was
thinking more on the tracks of
an airport / hospital corridor thingy, maybe even
talks to the "public"... something like: "Ooh, I see
are in a hurry" or if it notices somebody is in pain
- it says "oh, I see it hurts" then plays sad bg music
- Just like in the movies, and of course in tune to
that person's steps. Maybe it would cause people
to look up, and check if they were selected to be
||The - "Fatal Auto Collision Sound" hibea is
ingenious. But again, its a personal or local device.
IMHO - not the same as this idea.
||//"Ooh, I see you are in a hurry"// Clippy in meatspace.
Imagine running down the travelator at the airport and
having this thing play "Mission Impossible" or "Chariots of
Fire" Oh, the embarrassment.
||Perhaps I'm looking at it wrong. Considered as a way to
discourage running on the travelator, it's quite ingenious.
||[+] for giving all those public security cam people something useful to do.
||Given that everyone's experience of a moment is
pretty much unique and different, with speakers
mounted all over, the resulting 'music' would just a
be a cacophony of noise. Sort of "The Sound Track of
Life.".....Sort of like what we hear now, I guess.
