Stephen Meierding shows that bicycles aren't just for riding on streets; bikes can be a tool to make intensifying sounds to create music.

Entitled 'Bicycle Sounds,' this Meierding short film shows a brilliant cluster of sounds made from bicycle parts. Viewers can see the slow climb of beats made with the chain and a flapping card that sets out the base. As it slowly intensifies, the video introduces other bike parts such as the wheels, handles and tire accessories.

The audio is one part that makes this short film so interesting, but it's also the camera shots that introduce a funky view of a bicycle. 'Bicycle Sounds' by Stephen Meierding is the Spring 2012 winner of the Bike Shorts film festival.
