While some people hear London's soundtrack as a never-ending din of unearthly noise, others can make out an urban symphony — fit to be recorded for posterity.
That's the case with Tiny Concerts — a mystery composer, who's going around the various tube lines, and scoring the 'music' made by the closing doors.

We've never stopped before to appreciate the lilting tones of the Victoria line's door alarm, nor the frantic chirruping of the Piccadilly's (entitled here as Bagatelle in B Major).

Our only criticism: they've missed a trick not scoring the 'lyrics' too. Imagine what Bryn Terfel could bring to the line: 'Mind the gap between the train and the platform'. We're all aquiver just thinking about it.

We genuinely hope that someone from the London Symphony Orchestra gets wind of this little project, and that at next year's Proms, we're treated to a full orchestral version of these miniature masterpieces.
