Muzak Selects Saltmine to Create Online Presence

Saltmine Creative Inc., an online development and design firm, said that it was selected to design and develop a Web site and intranet for Muzak.

"We are proud to partner with Saltmine in creating an exceptional site," said Kenny Kahn, Muzak's vice president of marketing. "We have no doubt that they will exceed our expectations in developing a visually impressive, extremely functional online presence."

Billings were not disclosed. The site Saltmine is creating for Muzak will include audio collages for every genre in its catalogue, video clips, and monthly playlists for all 60 of Muzak's broadcast programs.

Muzak will be able to update the playlists via an automated publishing system Saltmine is developing.

Muzak uses this audio architecture to help businesses use the power of music as a persuasive tool or a way to amplify their brand personalities.
