Sound Tossing - 'Electronic Tools for Sonic Interventions in Urban Space'

A few nights ago I did a post on Yarnstormers, now I'm finding this blog of Sound Tossers. It can't get any better than this. Yet another medium artists are using to fuck with the system. Big respect for being the first to take street art to a sonic level.

Check it out:

The following is taken directly from their blog:

Sound Tossing is an alternative type of electronic street art dedicated to activist, artist and protesters. It is the practice of throwing or hanging audio devices (Sound Tossing Tools) up to overhead wires such as power lines or telephone cables. While Sound Tossing Tools are hanging from overhead wires they generate sounds for subversive urban communication.

First Sound Tossing was reported in November 2010 in Istanbul.

This blog chronicles Sound Tossing from around the world while trying to establish this new type of open source street art. It provides DIY instructions for Sound Tossing Tools and makes it available for everyone.'
