Emirates Tunes Up to Create Global Harmony

Emirates Tunes Up to Create Global Harmony

Emirates is aiming to strike a chord with music fans around its network by asking them to help create the ultimate musical mash up. The airline’s Harmony campaign invites participants to interact with a specially-commissioned musical composition, which has been recorded by professional musicians playing traditional instruments from around the world, such as the harp, Taiko drum, bass guitar, saxophone, Shekere, Oudht and Indian Flute. A sample composition from Ireland was recorded for Harmony by Cork band The Frank and Walters.

Visitors to the Harmony Campaign can browse the various instrumental arrangements and mash them up to create different versions of the score. The overall arrangement of the composition has been designed to ensure that all possible instrumental combinations sound perfect together.

Members of the public can add their own talents to the mix by recording themselves performing the score on a webcam or microphone and uploading the video or audio files to the Harmony Gallery. Submissions that impress the Emirates judges will be uploaded on to the airline’s dedicated YouTube channel.

Once video or audio files have been uploaded to the Harmony microsite, the sender will receive an email containing a link to the video in the Harmony Gallery. From the Gallery, links to the videos can be easily shared via Facebook, Twitter and email.

“Emirates connects over 120 destinations around the world, each with its own distinct cultural traditions that are constantly being reshaped and re-interpreted as new ideas and influences come into play,” said Sir Maurice Flanagan, Executive Vice Chairman – Emirates Airline & Group. “As the bridge between these destinations, Emirates is perfectly placed to bring ideas together; and the goal of our Harmony campaign is to achieve this through music.

“Emirates is a passionate supporter of music and proud partner of the Sydney, Melbourne and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras, while our inflight entertainment system offers more than 700 channels of musical genres, including classics and new releases from around the world. Now, we are taking our passion one step further by inviting music fans to help us create a unique musical journey that will showcase the many and varied destinations we serve. It doesn’t matter whether you are a professional musician, a keen amateur or just fancy the opportunity to show what you can do with a couple of saucepans and a wooden spoon – we want you to get involved.”
