Hardwell "United We Are: Vredestein Remix" (2015) 3:08 (The Netherlands)

Vredestein is a high-end tire company. DJ Hardwell is, as his name would suggest, a DJ. And Carmen Jorda is a world-class racing driver. What do the three have to do with each other? To support their new winter tyre Wintrac xtreme S, Vredestein took Carmen Jorda down to the snowy Chilean mountains and had her test out the new winter tires. All the while some technicians measured the performance of the tires whilst braking, turning, accelerating and more. Then they used software to transmit the data into a midi-file which then DJ Hardwell then used to remix his hit "United We Are," featuring Amba Shepherd

We've seen "blank created into music," executions before. Most notably VW and Nike and FCB measured mountains to create music for Jeep.

Someone should come up with a name for this execution style.

Y'know, I'd like to know exactly what they mean by this. Because I'm sure they did the 'remix' visuals in post and the speed of the car is probably only tangentially related to the tempo of the track.
