These are all pretty great ideas, do we have a rough estimate of what kind
of budget we have though? Might get kind of pricey once all the pieces are
together. Anyhow if there is going to be a Raspberry Pi in the mix maybe
you can do some OpenCV magic to get an idea of traffic density and such and
MIDI magic for the music...or trigger random samples from the BBC 'rural
sound effects' compilations....all kinds of possibilities....

Have you thought about collecting data? For example after a few weeks you
could change the tones and see if people walk at a different pace. Or keep
track of the tone patterns throughout the day and publish a type of 'sheet
music'. Busy foot traffic would have a different song then slow traffic.
