A sound can reach your brain in just 0.05 seconds, much faster than the 0.2 seconds it takes for sight or touch. But more importantly, it has this amazing power that instantly takes you to special places and memories; jolly carols remind us that the holidays are here, and a single song can let you relive the moments of your first prom dance.

Likewise, brand sounds have the potential to take consumer experience to the next level, making the experience more sensory and immersive. Because we understand this power, our team of sound designers have always looked for ways to sonically express the Samsung brand throughout our product experience. Over the years, we have designed iconic brand sounds like ‘Over the Horizon’ and ‘Beyond the Horizon’ to accompany and express the cutting-edge innovation of our mobile devices, and the comfy, reliable convenience of our home appliances.

Today, we introduce a new brand sound that overarches the entire Samsung family: ‘The Voyage’. Created through a team effort integrating and simplifying the melodies of ‘Over the Horizon’ and ‘Beyond the Horizon’, ‘The Voyage’ will anthem Samsung’s relentless innovation across all touchpoints to enhance your brand experience through our favorite universal language – music.

That Samsung sound!

The minimal, four-note melody of ‘The Voyage’ is constructed to represent the Samsung spirit of the relentless pioneer who overcomes obstacles and sets paths for others to follow. Its beautiful simplicity allows the score to be re-interpreted and re imagined in countless ways for different contexts and narratives, while maintaining the goal of creating “that Samsung sound” for the global audience.

Never settle, even for perfection

Every note of ‘The Voyage’ is carefully placed to deliver an important narrative: our promise of reassurance and reliability of our products, and the optimistic anticipation for our future innovations.

The melody begins with a feeling of comfort and stability.

The very first note, ‘Do’(C), represents the firm start that paved our path to new possibilities.
Then comes the subtle shift in tone through the mid-melody, beginning with a ‘Sol’(G), and dropping to ‘Mi’(E), expressing of our preparation for the next big leap.

Finally, the last note ‘Re’(D) leaves us with an open feeling of anticipation and excitement towards an infinitely open future.

Through these notes, ‘The Voyage’ invites the audience to Samsung’s never-ending journey towards greater perfection.
