Ever wondered why do elevators have music?
Elevators have over the years advanced many folds. From a mere platform that would carry people up and down, they’ve now turned into a suave setting of technology. This transformation came in after the 18th century when the sales and demand for elevators increased.
Talking about india, due to rapid urbanisation and the advent of new-age technology rushing through the back doors of evolution, the elevator industry has increased to about 60% and is expected to reach even more so. However, as children all of us have, at some point of time, questioned the setting of an elevator.
Have you ever wondered why do elevators have music? It is said that in the earlier days, people used to be amazed and stared in the oblivion, while in an elevator. That’s when companies realised that to save people from awkward silences and feeling claustrophobic, had a special feature of music.
Music in elevators differs from place to place. Corporate offices would have a soft music while residential buildings might have patriotic music. Also, elevators make a certain level of noise, when, in use. Hence, to cover up this noise, elevators started having a musical background.
According to one legend, “elevator music, more commonly known as Muzak, came to use in the 1922 with original purpose to calm the fearful passengers who used the elevators for the first time. Since then use of this calm, relaxing music became widespread and is today often used in many areas beside elevators (shopping malls, grocery stores, department stores, cruise ships, airports, telephone systems and more). Muzak tunes are purposely made to hold very simple melody and to be unobtrusive and easily looped.”
It has been proven that some kinds of elevator music can psychologically make buyers to shop longer and browse items more easily.
