As commuting New Yorkers, this idea is music to our ears. From SmithsonianMag:
Think about the last time you were in a train or subway station. What did you hear? Clattering and squealing, probably, along with the loud, robotic beeps of train doors closing or people swiping train passes.
Musician James Murphy would like to change that. The former frontman for LCD Soundsystem wants to turn the New York City subway into an ear-pleasing electronic symphony. He imagines turnstiles that, instead of beeping, play melodic notes as riders swipe their cards to enter the system.
