Play the Road – driving music reinvented

Over the past 6 months, Underworld have been involved in a project that synchronises motion technology and music in a collaboration with Volkswagen.

Together with a team of developers and designers, Underworld created a dynamic composition and App that responds to the Golf GTI’s motion to create a unique musical score with every drive.

For safety reasons, the App itself will never be released to the public, so a number of films have been created to illustrate the output of the project. From our perspective, this is really difficult to achieve as there’s nothing quite like sitting behind the wheel yourself in a safe and controlled environment and driving your own score. The closest we’ve got to showing the work as we see it is in this simple film of one of our favourite drives by precision driver Steve Gault.
