Lancaster’s musical road to be closedSunday, September 21, 2008 at 8:32 | Posted in music, odd, USA | 13 Comments
A road strip in Lancaster California has been equipped with grooves cut into the surface in order to produce a sound which bears a resemblance to the William Tell Overture. It is one of three musical roads in the World, the other two being in Japan and South Korea. The musical road is a courtesy of Honda.
Hearing the music for a short moment as you drive by at a speed of 55 mph may be nice but local residents do not think so. They have to bear with the sound every single time somebody drives by. The music was designed to sound good in a car but what the residents hear is different.
The Lancaster musical road is now going to be closed but thanks to the Tube the experience is going to be available for us.
