Fiat Chrysler Australia and agency Cummins&Partners are set to launch ‘The Performance Piece’ in celebration of Alfa Romeo’s 105th anniversary.
The performance sees an opera singer effectively sing a lap of a racetrack, replicating the exhaust note of the Alfa, her sheet music – the tachometer of the Giulietta QV TCT.
Ben Couzens, co-executive creative director at Cummins&Partners said, “Sometimes the best concepts are the ones that make you scratch your head and ask, ‘This is cool but is it actually possible?’”
Partner Jim Ingram concludes, “Alfa Romeo has a rich history of racing performance and Italian style. This idea brings those two things together in a way that really does take your senses for a ride. This project represents the epitome of our Alfa Romeo brand platform for Australia, The Romance of Performance.”
Andrew Rovenko, creative technologist explained, “It’s a beautifully simple idea. To execute it, we have used existing technology in a completely new way. Using an on-board diagnostic interface, live data from the tachometer of the car was transmitted via Bluetooth to an application on a phone in the glove box, then the phone’s screen was mirrored via a 4G data connection to a tablet, which was referenced by our opera singer as sheet music.”
Ashlin Moore, senior advertising manager said, “Alfa Romeo has a rich Italian history, pairing it with opera through technology is a perfect fit for one of the world’s most emotive and evolving brands”.
The Performance Piece will roll out as an online content piece supported by TV, digital, PR, point-of-sale and in-dealer events.
