National Day songs are a tradition that you can count on every year. The annual celebrations often feature a mix of new songs, as well as big names performing iconic classics.
And this year, you can add local DJ MYRNE and the Porsche Taycan to that prestigious list. To mark Singapore’s 57th birthday, the collaboration sees the marriage of man and machine to recreate a National Day classic – ‘Home’ – using the sounds from Porsche’s flagship EV.
This has been achieved by sampling the natural tones and sounds from a Porsche – from doors ‘thudding’ shut to seatbelts ‘winding’, and the soft hum of the electric motor turning into an electrifying crescendo on sporty acceleration – MYRNE created a modern take on the 2001 classic."National Day songs bring Singaporeans together and are such a unique synthesis of creativity and culture. With Porsche, I wanted to take common and unnoticed sounds – like the sounds cars make in every day operation – and turn it into something special: in this instance, showcasing the beautiful musicality of a Porsche by creating an unexpected listening experience in celebration of our beloved lion city," MYRNE said.
Porsche understands that the sound of their engines are just as iconic as the driving experience itself, which is why Porsche’s engineers have made sure that the Taycan preserves the aural aspect of motoring to maintain a certain depth and dimension to the drive.The task fell to Acousticians at Weissach, who worked on the Taycan since 2015 to create a special Porsche soundtrack that wasn’t just characteristic, sporty and powerful – but also full of feedback for the driver. The resultant Porsche Electric Sport Sound is an entirely innovative sound experience. Emotional, rather than obtrusive, but present and unmistakable.
Porsche will release the complete music video of the soundtrack in due course, and we’ll update the article to reflect it!
