The bottom note (centered in the museum car park) is lower D, then the highway lanes produce F,A,C,E,G, and the overpass is high B and D. The notes are triggered as the cars pass the line produced by the central street light. The work is on view at Tacoma Art Museum, Washington, USA from May 14th to September 2016. Accompanying the piece is a graphic of the transposed score on traditional western staff. The graphic measures 18 inches x 20 feet (representing the 30 minutes of traffic being played).
