Student Michael Harper recently presented BeatCity as part of the D&AD New Blood multi-institution grad show. The project sees a series of speakers made from laser cut wood built in the shape of buildings on a city street, each representing a different type of music. Each carefully constructed building, whether it be a church, high-rise or town house, is created to perfectly embody a particular genre of music ranging from heavy metal to gospel. BeatCity speakers are rechargeable and are designed to sync with mobile. They also contain a conveniently placed dock in front of each building for the devices to sit in.
