Music My Pet was created by composer Tom Nazziola. Their first CD “Classic cuts” became a great success, with many happy customers (check out some of the comments on their facebook page or this positive review).
The music is essentially specially edited classical music. All of the “dramatic” parts in the classical compositions were omitted in Music My Pet recordings, leaving only the soothing sounds. Also, the choice of instruments was made with research on pet behaviour in mind. Harp, piano, classical guitar are all proven to help our pets unwind. On the other hand brass instruments, so commonly used in normal classical music recordings do not have that relaxing effect on animals and so were not used in Music My Pet compositions. Similarly to RelaxMyPet tunes, each track begins with a high-pitched tone, inaudible to people, but attracting your pet’s attention. If you want to hear more about the theory and process behind Music My Pet creations, here’s a pretty interesting radio interview with Tom Nazziola, involving also feedback from an animal behaviourist and a veterinarian.
The company has lately released a new CD “Mellow melodies”. Having listened to some sample recordings, I have to say I loved it. Pretty sure Vadim will too. I’ll try it out during our next travels, which considering upcoming birthdays in the family should be soon. Meanwhile, let me know if you’ve had any experience with Music My Pet!
