One day, I noticed that it should be interesting if railroad timetables were converted into music. Therefore, I made a sample by way of experiment. I used the timetable of JR Shinjuku Station because it has 14 tracks and handles about 1.5 million passengers a day. I found it had musical developments. For example, when the music met rush hours, music got aggressive too. So I decided to make music of all 29 stations on the Yamanote Line. I converted timetables into music as follows. I treated one minute of a timetable as a sixteenth note, and notes were played at departures of trains. [figure] http://www.hagiplan.com/music/music_of_timetables/images/conversion.gif The pitch of the notes were calculated based on the following expression. ('line ID' + 'hour' + 'minute') mod 'number of tones' The 'line ID' in this expression means which line I used. For example, the line ID of Saikyo Line at Shinjuku Station bound for Omiya is 1. I used timetables on the web site of East Japan Railway Company as of March 23, 2008. Although some music are dedicated to specific musicians, do not take them seriously, just take them as respects. And most of them (except Ueno Station etc) do not relate to the places of the stations, too. I added intros or outros to some music for musical sake, but I changed neither those pitch nor those timing. They are combined with timetables. 01 Shinagawa Station - for Two Woodwinds The left woodwinds play in C major, the right woodwinds play in Ab minor. They play tenute once every three times, and perform staccatos strongly as the remainder. 02 Osaki Station - for Daihachi Oguchi Six taikos play as kumi-daiko. Uses the power of hits as tone series, not those pitches. 03 Gotanda Station - for Philip Glass Performs a minimal phrase of 7/16 throughout the whole music. The sounds are not performed at the departures of trains. When a train pulls out, the note is selected from the phrase by calculating above expression. 04 Meguro Station - for Dr.Moog and Yaoya-san Two moog-like bass synthesizers are played on a TR-808-like drum machine. In this music, Yaoya-san means TR-808. 05 Ebisu Station - for the Third Man Every stations on the Yamanote Line has it's departure melody. It is the theme of 'The Third Man' for Ebisu Station. This music repeats seven notes at the beginning of that theme. Each pair of the lines is played in it's own octave. 06 Shibuya Station - for Les Paul Six lines on the Shibuya Station are linked to six strings of a guitar. And the pentatonic scale is performed. 07 Harajuku Station - for Terry Riley Phrases of four demisemiquavers are performed on the in-C like pulse. 08 Yoyogi Station - for Karlheinz Stockhausen Like 'Helicopter String Quartet', the quartet is placed opposite order. Phrases go up in the beginning, keep those pitch in the middle stage, and go down in the end. 09 Shinjuku Station - for Auguste Mustel Uses the chromatic scale as a tone series. Each of 13 lines performs the celesta sound. The faster train departures, the higher octave is used by it's note. Auguste Mustel is the inventor of celesta. 10 Shin-Okubo Station - for Steve Reich Multiple percussions are used as a tone series. And notes are phased, changing the width of the gap according to the time of the timetable. 11 Takadanobaba Station - for the Robot Boy Repeats a same phrase throughout the whole music, like the Gotanda Station. But in this case, notes are not selected. The phrase change it's tempo at the departures of trains. 12 Mejiro Station - for Ivan Wyschnegradsky A performance by a quarter tone piano with it's sustain pedal pressed throughout music. 13 Ikebukuro Station - for Qu Yuan Gagaku - the Japanese classical music - traces it's roots to China. This music uses ritsu scale as a tone series. Fast trains are converted to high tones or water sounds. 14 Otsuka Station - for Robert Fripp A Robert Fripp style minimal phrase gets whole tone higher and higher, according to the time of the timetable. The notes are shifted at the departures of trains. 15 Sugamo Station - for Yatsuhashi Kengyo The koto is a harp of
