In Lydverkeri (Soundworks) the city soundscape gets integrated into the music as the musicians are able to play the horns of the veteran boats on the harbor.

When Ole Hamre plays keyboard, custom developed software transmits messages to a server at BEK. At the server the received messages dynamically update a number of web pages. The veteran boats are connected to internet, and monitor these web pages in order to receieve instructions on when to blow the horns.

The software is developed using a combination of Max, Ajax and JavaScript.
