Although I love the concept of electric vehicles, they freak me out because they’re so silent. Outside of road and wind noise, they don’t make a sound. Or do they?
Moritz Simon Geist, a musician and robotic engineer, likes to build interesting and weird things. He’s teamed up with Polestar, Volvo’s electric car division, to create a song based on sounds he found in a Polestar vehicle.
If you’re familiar with the musique concrete experiments of people like Pierre Schaffer back in the 50s and some early Kraftwerk, you’ll get a kick out of this. The collection of music is called From MPH to BPM.
