Cars Gary Numan Track Played with Real Cars

Have a look at the video below to see Gary Numan play the 1979 hit “Cars” on a couple of dozen real cars. The setup is quite bizarre where 24 cars are attached to a single car battery as well as a double keyboard. When a key is pushed the corresponding car horn sounds to make the Cars tune.

Wired originally said that car horns were used but sampled through MP3 players and loud speakers fitted in each car.

Adam Sadowsky, President of Synn Labs who are responsible for the ad says…

We absolutely used horns to play the notes live. We couldn’t use the horns in that came in the cars because they weren’t tuned properly, so we tuned our own and put them into the car’s engine compartments.
