Passion for music and languages

The variety of our team is unique. Our phoneticians deal with linguistic challenges and develop strategies and tools for effortless pronunciation in foreign languages. Programmers enable error-free transcriptions for every language. With our musicologists we are connected to performing musicians and music publishers. Further employees support us in business administration and data visualization matters.

Korbinian Slavik

CEO & Business Process Manager

My goal is to make it possible to sing in any language you desire.

Korbinian Slavik focuses on a scientifically innovative combination of musicology, linguistics and phonetics. Through his studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and the Universiteit Utrecht, as well as a scholarship from the ESF and the BMWi, he was able to develop a technically innovative approach to singing in other languages and together with his colleagues bring it to production maturity. Due to his singing experience in professional choirs, he knows the specific requirements of making music and therefore pays special attention to a high-quality end product in the form of musical notes with phonetic transcriptions.
