Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.

— Confucius

Once upon a time

Music was still in the background

We started out as a technical provider of background music for restaurants and spas. Music didn’t remain ‘background’ for long. Two decades of working with music has attracted brilliant music thinkers and creatives to our company. Today, we are a leading music consultancy in North America, helping clients across the globe create distinctive sensory experiences through strategic and creative use of music.

A giving spirit
