8 SISTEMAS | 8sistemas.net
The sound of 8 SISTEMAS follows some of the same characteristics. It is short and uses the sound of the wind as well. We used heavy drums to create a marching beat, a continuous synthetizer sound sequence, a unique electronic guitar sound, and quick snares in key areas of the soundtrack. The beat does not change much to keep it consistent with our main brand, but it is different enough to have a personality of its own.
We like how it sounds and how easily fit our branding needs as well as how it helps us define our creative direction as we listen to it during own design process – it prompts you to move your feet along with the “marching” beat! At least, that’s what happens to us when we listen to it and work on this project.
For us, it conveys “gradual and sequential learning” as it begins slow and increases in speed as time progresses – mimicking somehow the process of learning. The drum snare has a subtle meaning — “a new goal reached” during the learning process (a milestone). At the end, it ends with a fading and calm synthesizer sound.
