The Future of Sound Of Electric Vehicles | Vision M Next

How do you create a sound that doesn't exist yet? That's the challenge BMW acoustic engineer and sound designer, Renzo Vitale, has taken on with the M Next.

Dive into how Renzo takes the abstract form of sound and transforms it into innovative electric car sound design.

At BMW, our mission is to create a sonic world that effortlessly adds elegance to the streets. With a sleek, luxurious, and futuristic style that's never been seen before - and sounds that have never been heard - the future of sound has arrived with The BMW Vision M Next.

I cannot wait to hear what he comes up with.

In the mean time I'll go listen to my turbocharger spooling up again and again.

Why can't we just license sounds?

I want my future electric car to sound like a freakin Tie Fighter.

As a sound designer / composer myself, I'm just glad that BMW are taking the challenge seriously & considering the urban environment.

Ben Burtt (sound designer of Star Wars) faced the same challenge Renzo Vitale has here, except that all he had to begin with was a artist's sketch of a tie fighter to work with & his imagination. The Tie Fighter sound is a car driving on wet pavement blended with the call of an elephant + doppler effects to create a sense of movement. Burtt created all the sounds of the Star Wars universe, including the languages for R2D2 and Chewbacca. He is a genius!

Hopefully Vitale comes up with something equally iconic. If not, screw Disney, just hire Burt to come up with something new.

If you want to look at companies not taking the sound of their products seriously, check out videos of Google and Amazon's delivery drones. From the videos you'd think they're silent as they remove the sound from the drone footage. The drones themselves are actually louder than leaf blowers.

Now imagine flocks of 100s or 1000s of leaf blowers flying around your city in residential areas... They should be banned by the EPA until the sound issue can be resolved.

I hope someone figures out how to hack the audio. I'll echo what R0ut3r said, make it sound like a Tie Fighter!

So, I used to work at NASA. This is relevant because while I was working there, I got to take a tour of the supercomputer facility. One of the things they had simulations of that they were working on was counter-rotating fans to increase output while decreasing sound. It was a pretty mesmerizing video.

You think that's cool? Well I got you beat, I once stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

Looks like BMW lost their vision with that concept. I can't imagine the "Ultimate Driving Experience" to be the same ever again.

The soy car Posche Taycan is running 10.4x qtr Mile times at 130mph, gets over 70mpge, 2.4 sec 0-60 times, and can beat a 458 Italia around many tracks. Sounds impressive to me. Especially considering it takes about 600lbs of battery to equal 1 gallon of gas.
