Bell Triggered Musical Installation

On December 1, 2009 I posted a sound that was a composition including audio recordings from nine forms transportation all captured in one day. The post was accordingly called Nine Forms of Transportation in One Day. I also recorded some ambiance while waiting for the light rail in downtown Minneapolis. At the Nicollet Mall and Fifth Street LRT platform there is strange device that when triggered by a bell plays a comedic choral piece about the state of Minnesota. I realized far too late after triggering this musical installation that doing so was clearly a violation of light rail transit station etiquette.
