On Youtube: Sonic Branding
- How the music industry helps business build engaging and authentic brands

According to latest research Music appears to "activate more parts of the brain than any other stimulus" (... Alive Inside).

It's not a new phenomenon,  sound and music has been influencing us for years. It is used in travel and tourism in just about every promotional video, but sonic branding is taking it to new levels of engagement and purpose.

Just as Coke did with its signature tune that all started with the line: "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" writed by Bill Backer on a napkin at the airport.  The song and music that it became offered a positive message of hope and love, sung by a multicultural collection of teenagers on the top of a hill.

"Buy the World a Coke" repeated "It's the real thing" as Coca-Cola's marketing theme at the time. Ad man Bill Backer wrote the commercial that became the song and advertising legend Harvey Gabor, directed the 1971 commercial, “Hilltop”.  The song was the work of Billy Davises, Senior Vice-President and Music Director of McCann Erickson. Davies also wrote "Things Go Better With Coke" and "Country Sunshine" for Coca-Cola and "If You've Got the Time" for Miller Beer. As Laura says "Music and Brands go hand in hand, like "The Brand and the Band".

Technology too is playing a huge part in how music is used, distributed and actualized.  Coke moved forward with its vision making it possible for individuals to really "Buy the world a coke" in a project with Google, its advertisers, artists and creative people. The ad was re-imagined with technology gurus at Google and the results was a specially-developed vending machines where one can actually buy the world a Coke using Google’s advertising platform connected to the machines. "Users can record a message and send it with a Coca-Cola to connect with someone on the other side of the world."

Sounds exciting? Well it is and the book "The Band and the Brand" is a great start to understand the possibilities of sonic branding for companies, artists, advertising and the music industry.
