Hans Zimmer is composing BMW’s electric cars

One of Hollywood’s most notorious producers is taking his composition talents to soundtrack the next generation of BMW vehicles.

World renowned producer Hans Zimmer has been in a different environment lately, working with BMW on their cars. But he’s not behind the engineering of refining electronic motor power, instead he’s creating the sound of BMW’s next generation electric vehicles.

Alongside Renzo Vitale, an acoustic engineer and sound designer at the BMW Group, Zimmer has been composing the sound for the new Vision M NEXT that debuted on June 25th. Together they composed the drive sounds and sound signs for the vehicle in Zimmer’s London and Los Angeles studios.

BMW’s senior vice president, Jens Thiemer said: “We want to get BMW IconicSounds Electric in position for customers who value emotional sound. With BMW IconicSounds Electric they will be able to experience the joy of driving with all their senses.

The car is BMW’s flagship vehicle for showing off the capabilities of their plans with electric cars. With professional sound design they hope to recreate a fully faithful BMW driving experience even with entirely different mechanisms working it.
