Ice Cream Truck Songs is a seasonal set of melodic chimes and jingles produced for playback on ice cream truck loudspeaker horns. The sonic messages investigate the invasive distribution and transmission techniques of public address systems.

Ice Cream Truck Songs acts as a soft-serve cover album of the most common jingles found in ice cream truck music boxes. Each track is arranged to be looped for an extended, unknown duration over and over again. Ice Cream Truck Songs was created using circuit-bent variations of handclaps, calliopes, glockenspiels, chimes, bells, and MIDI tones.

Ice Cream Truck Songs consists of three discrete parts: a gallery installation, a photo catalog, and playback in an ice cream truck trolling neighborhood of Chicago.
