The city is pretty gloom during the rain so I was thinking of ways to make something fun out of it.

If you look down from the sky scrapers you can see black dots of people moving in the rain with their umbrellas. NYC's city grid and black umbrellas look awfully close to a music sheet...

So I was wondering, how would it sound?
I played out some videos I found of people walking on the street and screen captured every 5 seconds. Each image became a section of music. People with umbrellas are the Treble Clef and people without umbrellas are Bass Clef.

The reference videos are this and this. Didn't put them here because I'm not sure I'm allowed...

Have a listen!
