Thumbs up Brilliant Music composed only by car sounds

British composer Mark Marrington has composed a musical single using just the regular car sounds.

Here's the link

UK composer creates single entirely from car sounds

I loved it.

It is good but it gets irritating after a minute

Even James May tried his hand at this, composing the TopGear title track with automobile exhaust notes, using heck lot of cars, ranging from a Ferrari Enzo to a vintage Bugatti. That was utter rubbish but.

Loved it for the first 2 minutes, and I truly appreciate the effort. That said, I don't think I'll ever be playing it again.

Among other things, he should have kept the duration short, and focussed on a single tune that carried the song.

Good effort, but the cacophony of horns reminds me of our traffic scene, though our traffic is not so coordinated.

This is the first time I have head something like this. I am with you Speedmiester, I loved it.It is an extraordinary attempt to derive some symphony from cacophony.

Remind me to listen to this the next I need to change the horns on my cars. That said, it started off nice with the cranking noise nicely mixed in.

Man! That must have taken a lot of effort - hats off! But yes - one would not want to listen it again.
I would call it an 'automobile a capella'. But without the charm of the human kind.

Here's another interesting video from the popular band OK Go!, made in partnership with Chevrolet.

Incidentally I saw this video for the first time this morning. An interesting take for a music video but the song is just about OK. Talking about good 'in-car' soundtracks - Try 'Dont Gimme that' by the BossHoss, a mid-west inspired German band. Not the song you want to listen to if you are searching for hard hitting rock or contemporary pop..its just good ol fashioned rock and roll - top notch car audio material in my book. Oh and a pretty cool video which can be viewed legally, im glad to report, in the bands website.

Here is the opposite side. Sound of a car produced by a choir...

The ad of Honda Civic where the sounds of the car are performed by a choir.
