Ford’s Mach-E makes hypnotic music
Whilst driving, Ford’s all-electric Mustang Mach-E sounds so reminiscent of classic 80’s sci-fi cinema that Detroit-based electronic music artist Matthew Dear has transformed its sci-fi style sounds into electronic music.
Inspired by iconic sci-fi soundtracks the musician took the ‘hypnotic’ electronic sounds which can be heard inside and outside of the Mustang Mach-E to create an electronic track called ‘New Breed’.
The sounds are cooler than I thought they’d be — cinematic and sci-fi — and all the noises the car makes have a sense of modern musicality.– Mathew Dear, Electronic music artist
“The idea of remixing the sounds from the Mustang Mach-E was immediately interesting because I’ve always considered myself to be a ‘sound tinkerer,’” said Dear. “But after I got to actually hear and experience the digital propulsion sounds that Ford created, I was sold on the project.
“The sounds are cooler than I thought they’d be — cinematic and sci-fi — and all the noises the car makes have a sense of modern musicality. Creating ‘New Breed’ was a new experience and I think the song — like the car — takes its passengers on a voyage.”
