    Kilowatt-hours are turned into music for Energisymfonin

    We’re now launching Energisymfonin (The Energy Symphony) – a unique piece of music based on graphs that shows the energy consumption of Gothenburg. The purpose of the campaign is to make people aware of how we use energy. Göteborg Energi and Stendahls are behind the project.

    Energisymfonin is a collaboration between Göteborg Energi, Maia Hirasawa, Klas-Henrik Hörngren (Klabbes bank) and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. In the music, we hear how the energy consumption varies throughout a year as the temperature goes up and down and half a million inhabitants of Gothenburg shower, work, cook and sleep. The insight behind the campaign came during a visit to the graph room at Sävenäs cogeneration plant.

    “I think most of use walk around carrying some sort of climate anxiety, but at the same time it can feel rather hopeless to try to make a difference. In the energy graphs, there’s a bunch of exciting data that proves that the little things we do in our everyday lives really does matter, when many are doing it at the same time. When half a million people take a morning shower for example, it shows”, says Maja Kipatsi Danell, copy at Stendahls.

    Energisymfonin is the first step in a long-term project designed to create commitment for energy issues.

    “Using music to convey a message is not unique, but Energisymfonin is more than a soundtrack to a campaign. It’s a new way of making interesting data available to the public, packaged as something that hopefully is seen as more exciting than if we just would have talked about kWh” says Andreas Gunberg, Key Account Manager at Stendahls.

    “Since we haven’t had much opportunity to work with purchased media, our focus has been on creating something interesting that people actually want to take part in, and that contributes positively to the community, which is a cornerstone in Göteborg Energi’s value-driven communication strategy”, says Andreas.

    Energisymfonin is presented in form of a music video and a short documentary about the project. On the campaign site, you can listen to the music connected to the graph, and get tips on how to easily save energy in your everyday life. Energisymfonin is also available on iTunes and Spotify. The campaign will be released in full during week 21.

    Film: Amanda Bergman - Composed by Nature

    We were curious of Amanda Bergman and decided to meet up with her at Furillen, Gotland. During a couple of intensive days, we got some insight into the life of a talented musician, and the pleasure of experiencing some of Amanda’s favourite places, in a Volvo XC60.

    Everything has been documented on film, and as photographs and in an editorial piece. And as a song – listen to Amanda’s song “Falcons”, used exclusively for our documented meeting on film. The story has been published in the upcoming summer edition of My Volvo Magazine, and the film can be found on volvocars.com
