All-electric vehicles aren’t exactly known for their sound, since they don’t have a noise-emitting gas engine. But that didn’t stop a Detroit musician from giving the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E a soundtrack.
It all started with Ford engineers who worked with sound designers to create futuristic propulsion noises to enhance the Mach-E driving experience. Inspired by classic ‘80s sci-fi cinema, they collaborated with the studio Ozone Sound to craft electronic oscillations that emanate in and outside of the Mustang Mach-E while the vehicle is in motion.
They then sent those sounds to acclaimed electronic musician Matthew Dear, a founding member of world-renowned electronic music label Ghostly International, who turned them into a song.
Dear used the synth-heavy sounds to create “New Breed,” a hypnotic electronic remix that’s distinctly Mustang Mach-E.
“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.”
