  • DUBAI, UAE (Feb. 25, 2015) ñ Infiniti Middle East has announced the launch of Chromatic, an audio composition and animation made entirely from the sounds and shapes of the Infiniti range. Both the video and sound track are set to be distributed globally by Universal Music Group.

Infiniti Middle East has announced the launch of “Chromatic,” an audio composition and animation made entirely from the sounds and shapes of the Infiniti range.

Both the video and sound track are set to be distributed globally by Universal Music Group.

Ideated in April 2014 with agency TBWA-Raad, Infiniti sought to create a library of sound generated by elements of the cars themselves: brakes, tire spins, gearshifts, seatbelt clicks, exhaust roars and internal alerts.

A project eight months in the making, the resulting composition of the “Chromatic” audio/video clip can be viewed on Facebook at Infiniti Fan page.

A behind the scenes recording of the ‘making of’ video is also available on YouTube at www.youtube.com/InfinitiMiddleEast.

Those keen on having this ‘get up and go’ track on their Smartphone, mp3 player or for playback in their car stereo can download it on Sound Cloud at www.soundcloud.com/infinitime/chromatic-by-infiniti. Through the Universal Music Group, the content will be available on popular music platforms iTunes, Anghami, Deezer and Spotify.

The vehicles used to create this “Inspired Performance” included the QX80, QX70, QX60 and the Q50 sedan.

Megadon Betamax, a respected global producer and composer, brought the piece to life. A classically trained musician, popular DJ and founder of Voyeur Rhythm Records, Betamax worked from scratch to deliver a piece that was contemporary, bold, enjoyable and shareable.

Infiniti and TBWA-Raad approached talented animator and videographer Misha Shyukin to create the complex visuals, designed to illustrate each beat and note. These visuals were to be created using the designs of the Infiniti cars with the theme of arabesque patterns of Middle Eastern Art, its intricate patterns, symmetry and shapes.

Every frame is made up entirely of elements of the cars used to create the sound – a series of over 150 elaborate designs created from the curves of the QX80, QX70, QX60 and the Q50 sedan.
