Dear Music Listeners and Colleagues in the Audio Industry,
Here you have the opportunity to actively participate in the reshaping and healthy recovery of your industry!
Become an Active Member and support the extensive work of the PMF. Under the menu item "Foundation" you can become informed about the numerous activities and work groups through which PMF as crossover organization within the audio industry is organizing the way out of the "Sound Crisis." By means of incrementally small step, our industry has been steadily moving into a dead end for over 10 years. The dissatisfaction of music listeners is continuously rising! Having digressed this far, the only long-term solution to this problem is coordination of efforts in public relations, education, and research.

Corporate Active Membership

Only a worthy music product generates returns for the entire industry. For over a decade the ears of our music listeners have been subjected to a weaning process that has made cell-phone loudspeakers attain the status of an acceptable musical experience. Where is the market of tomorrow, if the customers of tomorrow are not going to become re-sensitized? Beyond the economic benefit for the entire music industry, we also have a responsibility towards society, considering that the omnipresence of sound-pulp and over-compressed music is exerting stress on listeners in hitherto unmeasured dimensions.

You and your business can be part of this reversal process. Become an Active Member!
