We’ve made no secret of the fact that we want to pull our industry in a new direction. We may march to the beat of our own drum, but we hope that what we’re playing will tempt others to join in. Call us the Pied Pipers of electric mobility.
So, when it comes to making actual Polestar music, we want to set a precedent there too, engaging the services of composer Lisa Nordström to create the music that exemplifies the brand. At Svenska Grammofon Studion in Polestar’s hometown of Gothenburg, Lisa and a team of musicians worked on creating the songs that will feature in future Polestar projects.
At first glance, it seems an unlikely forum for Polestar: wooden panels, porcelain lamps, and 70s microphones, with the Neve console previously owned by Queen as the centrepiece. This equipment proved to be the best; though some of it may be from yesterday, it’s ideal for recording the music of tomorrow.
The music exists to help deliver the message: a message of sustainable electric performance, and a cleaner future. That’s a beat that everyone can march to.
The journey towards more sustainable mobility has forced us to get off the beaten track. Not only was the traffic terrible, but it wasn’t getting us to where we need to go. Now, we’re entering uncharted territory. To help us navigate in a rapidly transforming world, we need a roadmap. An exponential roadmap.
The Polestar Design Contest features a truly expert jury. Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni, Senior Design Manager Juan Pablo Bernal and Car Design Research Director Sam Livingstone are the ones who will evaluate every submission, pore over every detail, and ultimately determine the winners of the contest.
