The first new policy that the Taipei City Government’s Department of Cultural Affairs has come up with in the first hundred days of Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s tenure is “soundscapes” for the Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) system. The proposal was thought up by the Idea Taipei Creativity Workshop, with experts and ordinary citizens taking part. A press conference was held on Monday last week in the MRT’s Daan Park Station to show the public what to expect. Ko took part in the event and said that hopefully in the future songs associated with Taipei can be heard in the MRT, such as Sky of Taipei, Fork In The Road and Drifting To Tamsui, which can instantly make people relate to Taipei upon hearing them. Ko also remarked that hopefully every MRT station will have its own theme music, with the public taking part in the music production. The doors-closing sound, alert sounds and background music will all undergo changes.

The Department of Cultural Affairs demonstrated in the press conference what it would be like to change the alert sound for doors closing into “ukulele festival,” “Taiwanese folk music” and “frog croaks in nature” versions. Four Seasons of Blossoming played on a Japanese samisen lute was demonstrated as a theme for Beitou Station, whereas a natural theme of humming insects and twittering birds would be played at Daan Park Station to match the sounds heard nearby.

Cultural Affairs Commissioner Ni Chung-hwa said his department has discussed the soundscape proposal with the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation, and it is foreseen that travelers will begin to hear different sounds in the MRT before the end of this year.
