The Sound of the CUPRA BORN

For the past 18 months we and our project partners from Kling Klang Klong have been working with SEAT and CUPRA on their electric vehicle sound (AVAS), creating “engine”-sounds that tell the story of the brand. What a ride it’s been, and what a fantastic sounding result! This CUPRA Podcast is dedicated to the topic.

MusiCurve – Sound Implementation Software

In order to make a brand music easy to implement, we have developed an simple-to-use software tool that allows users to change the intensity of a given brand music piece or adapt it to the dramaturgy of the film to be set to music. The possibilities of intervention in the music are limited, so that the user cannot do anything “wrong” and the result is always high-quality brand music. The target group are employees, social-media departments and designers with little or no knowledge of music software and teams that do not have a budget to hire a sound studio to do the dubbing for a film production.

New Audio Branding for BVG

For several months, we have been working with BVG and the agency Die Botschaft on a holistic audio branding for all touchpoints of the Berlin public transport company. In addition to new signal tones and a sound logo, the voice is also an important part of BVG’s new sonic brand identity. Philippa Jarke, a native Berliner, prevailed over more than 1000 applicants to become the new voice of BVG. In the last few months, she has recorded over 4200 stations in our studio. She can now be heard on all BVG buses and, from the beginning of 2021, on all BVG streetcars and subways.

David Rollik, Head of BVG Corporate Communications:
“Philippa is a perfect fit for us because she is as distinctive as we are. The voice is the centerpiece of our new corporate sound, which acoustically reflects the diversity of Berlin and with which we want to sound like we appear visually.”

And that’s how the new BVG Voice sounds like:
