Music affects people in profound ways, from the advertisements and trailers we see on television and on our computers, right through to the experience we have in the environments we visit every day to shop, eat, drink or work.

Here at Activaire, we understand how people experience music, and we’ve utilized our expertise from the worlds of science and art to create stunning soundtracks.

We’ve worked with companies across 42 different countries, creating an individually tailored streamlined background music service. The music Activaire curates will simultaneously reinforce your brand message and engage with the customer, so they stay on your premises for a longer amount of time.

Activaire offers its clients a truly authentic curation service, with music that is selected by humans and delivered by code. We’re bringing the forefront of technology to background music, creating something beautiful that will excite everyone who walks through your door.

How does music bring brand experience to life?

Music triggers an emotional response within nanoseconds of being heard, and that emotion becomes associated with the brand. It’s a powerful element!

Music has different effects depending on the size of an audience. Your music program should take into account the fluctuations in your foot traffic throughout the day and week.

Studies show that when music fits an environment the effect is cinematic.  A richly designed setting feels immersive, and people are more likely to relax, settle in and join the experience.
