Rob Wood, Founder of Music Concierge, speaks to Ultimate Library.

“A game changing partnership: Music Concierge and Bar Lab at Itz’ana”

“We emotionally connect to the music that we love.
It can build a powerful, memorable bond between the listener and the artist, or indeed the place that is playing the music.”

“Don’t take music for granted.

Hearing is the second most important human sense. Your guests are experiencing your brand through sound whether you like it or not.”

“We all eat food, but we wouldn’t dream of designing a menu.
The chef should do that. Likewise we all love music, but knowing where to find great music and how each track affects people should be left to experts. Guests are unlikely to appreciate the F&B staff’s favourite dance tunes especially at tea time.”

“Music’s impact on humans both emotionally and physically means it can play an integral role in relaxing us.

Music can calm us and take us somewhere else as we drift between consciousness and sleep on the treatment room table.”

“Rob Wood is a DJ, published author and music journalist,
as well as the founder and creative director of the award-winning music consultancy service Music Concierge… clients include many of the world’s top hotels and clubs, bars and spas, restaurants and retail brands, from The Savoy and Harrods, to Mr & Mrs Smith and One&Only Cape Town.”

“Bespoke music playlist by Music Concierge. As heard at the Ampersand Hotel, London.

“Sound is often the part of a hotel’s sensory jigsaw that gets missed out.

Its impact needs to be thought through and controlled. To not do so is to miss a trick and an opportunity to improve the guest experience, as well as the takings.”

“Making the world sound better is a tall order, but somebody has to do it.”
