In Arndt-Helge Grap’s office, you can’t avoid great sounds: the walls are full of shelves with CDs from all over the world, a huge music archive in downtown Hamburg, near Jungfernstieg. The 57-year-old has been creating background music for hotels, shopping centers and cruise ships with his company Radiopark since 2003. Before the conversation in the conference room, he got going at six in the morning with weight training – for some things you need a little more than music.
Arndt-Helge Grap made his fortune with background music for cruise ships. A conversation about the wishes of Russian yacht owners, the sound of Australia and the danger of being replaced.
