Sound plays such an important in our life and it is also true for other cases such as cars. It can be sound of the engine or even the cabin noise. However, in case of Lincoln Aviator is bit different as it uses orchestra for alerting drivers and issuing warning sounds. For this purpose, Lincoln beseeched the help of Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Team of classical musicians recorded 125 musical combinations with the help of violin, viola and percussion. Lincoln then selected only six from the options that will permeate to the cabin of the all-new Aviator.
Lincoln design director David Woodhouse said in a statement that new crossover represents true vision of the Ford’s luxury brand. He further added that striking looks needed sound that could match the beauty of the vehicle. Lincoln Aviator has not been released but was showcased as concept form. Hence, to test the new sounds, Lincoln used Continental sedan. Now that the project is completed, it will be used on future 25 models. It will alert the driver for everything including opening the fuel tank to unlatching the seatbelt. Sounds will have three level of urgency that starts from non-critical, soft-critical to high-alert.
Lincoln vehicle harmony Chief Jennifer Prescott said that the project is quite a departure with incorporation of music to informational world. But their sole reasoning was luxury and by encompassing orchestra adds another dimension to the Aviator. Lincoln Aviator is reportedly to be unveiled at Los Angeles Auto Show. Aviator crossover will have all the chimes which will lead to other Lincoln lineup. For now, enjoy the video and understand the process of new chimes.
