Audemars Piguet Syncing Sounds
Music is inherent to the MATTE DNA. From our roots as a concert production company, to our owned entities – it fuels who we are as a collective and how we approach creative.
MATTE Projects was tapped by Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet to celebrate the beginning of its partnership with Mark Ronson revolving around the process of creation and the nurturing of human talents.
As a champion of creativity and attention to detail, Audemars Piguet came together with Mark Ronson to identify an up & coming talent born for center stage. Inspired by the thinking behind the program, MATTE crafted a 360 campaign around the duo’s processes and collaborative approach to crafting a hit.
From photo to video, music video to performance;
MATTE worked hand in hand with AP to bring that journey to life.
"As Mark guided the creative process, Lucky left his mark with his sultry sounds as an imprint; our approach was to let them cook while finding dynamic angles to showcase their immediately harmonious connection. From the start, it was never Too Much – just a consistent flow of rhythmic continuity.”
– Ariel Panigel, Associate Creative Director
One of Matte Projects’ very own originators and ongoing collaborative partner, Andre Bato was brought on board to direct. Together with his team, the collaboration was brought to life through Andre’s vision for the project.
“As someone who appreciates, and cherishes the creative process – the most important thing for me was to let things unfold organically in front of the camera… It’s about nurturing a space, and allowing for the moment to present itself rather than forcing it.”
— Andre Bato
