Porsche wrap up Fuji with a flourish
Last week, Porsche secured a proud podium finish after a rough-and-tumble World Endurance Championship 6 Hours of Fuji race. To mark the occasion and honour their host country, they wanted to create a celebration of the bout through the seven virtues of Bushidō, the key tenets of the samurai.
The music needed both to reflect a serene sense of place and purpose, then ramp up fitting tension for the race itself without the aid of voiceover – we found a slow-build gem from French composer Loïc Ghanem, which grows from stately, meditative score to percussive, kinetic drama. Congratulations to Porsche, and onward to Shanghai!
