Conversation philosophique sur l'amour Même si on n'est pas né de la dernière pluie et qu'on n'ignore plus rien de la variabilité historique et culturelle des comportements humains, on attend du philosophe qu'il réponde vaillamment :Qu'est ce que l'amour ?

About Us – Bicrophonic Research Institute Over ten years of international projects we have developed the sonic bike to do this. A bike with two mounted speakers on the front and GPS receiver and Raspberry Pi computer on the back. With our bespoke mapping software, different sounds are linked to different places meaning that the interactive music played by the bike changes dependent on where the cyclist goes and how fast they pedal.
