Endless Noise recently delivered original music for three new 30-second Audi spots for client McKinney-Silver of Durham, N.C. The Endless Noise crew includes creative director/composer Jeff Elmassian, composer Andy Rehfeldt, engineer Barry Goldberg, sound designer Scott Friedman and producer Roxanne Morganstern.
One spot was for the Audi A-6 (“Greater Than A6”) and two were for the Audi Winter Quattro (History Strip/Snow,” “History Strip/Non-Snow”).
For the A6 spot, Endless Noise used simple, repetitive pulsating rhythms and layers of synth patches. The track builds and supports the VO as the spot continues, then resolves with a solid bass line and quick drum and bass rhythms.
The Winter Quattro spots begin with a sentimental guitar intro. A bass line punctuated with syncopated, echoing synth lines follow, culminating into the spot’s theme.
Jonathan Cude, Sr. VP/group creative director for McKinney-Silver, says, “Endless Noise did a wonderful of balancing modern instrumentation with the sophisticated tonality of the spots. The music in the spots for the new A6, which is considered the best mid-size luxury sedan in the world, work really well in highlighting the innovation and technology of the car. It’s a premium luxury product but it was important for the music to accent that luxury with style and sophistication, not old world stodginess. And Endless Noise nailed it.”
