Pictures by John Grafman and Robert Shoji Italian car brand Maserati and British high end audio company Bowers & Wilkins brought their "Seven Notes World Tour" to Los Angeles on June 6, 2013, as part of a current seven city exhibition of sound, music and design. The global tour celebrates the arrival of the new Maserati Quattroporte, which is the carmaker’s first model to feature a Bowers & Wilkins sound system.
The "Seven Notes World Tour" experience is a sonic presentation by the two brands, ans is a progression of "Seven Notes," a collection of music tracks, produced by Howie B (Massive Attack, Bjork, U2), that were created using the seven distinct notes of Maserati V8 engines. The "Seven Notes" tracks were produced at London's Abbey Road Studios using Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers, by the way.
Encompassing Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York and London, plus a Vogue tribute event during Men's Fashion Week in Milan, the "Seven Notes World Tour" features a live performance of the "Seven Notes" tracks by Howie B at each location. Howie B is supported by a local DJ in each city (DJ Harvey in LA). LA Car was invited to capture some of the sights and sounds at the Los Angeles event.
