We are Tunify

Tunify is the streaming music service for professional users. Whether you realise it or not, you’ve already heard us: maybe it was in a cosy cafe or an original concept store. We might have made you sweat harder during a workout. Or perhaps we helped you find your inner peace in the wellness centre ...

The Tunify Concept

Tunify is a spin-off of the KU Leuven university. We have built a unique music platform by combining the insights of experienced music experts with innovative technology.

Our concept is based on 3 elements that are crucial to the music experience:

  • the context
  • the subjective character of music
  • the need to be able to personalise music

The Tunify technology

‘With Tunify, we have developed our own software. Our algorithms analyse the metadata of music and context to be able to propose the right music for every situation.

To be able to do this, we have mapped out the objective and subjective properties of music and applied advanced technologies such as neural networks and machine learning.

With our knowledge and technology, we are continuing to build on the online Tunify Music Engine. This clever music engine drives all Tunify products.’

Hans De Clercq - Computer Scientist @ Tunify

Innovation at Tunify

The Tunify team has worked together with the universities of Leuven and Ghent on a number of major research projects, with support from VLAIO (Flemish Innovation & Entrepreneurship).

We have collaborated with the research groups for Human-Computer Interaction and Experimental Psychology at KU Leuven and Digital Speech and Signal Processing at Ghent University. Thanks to these projects, our music experiences today are based on context and subjective information.

At the moment, Tunify is working together with the KU Leuven research groups for Human-Computer Interaction and Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence at KU Leuven on an innovative ‘Music Experience’ project.

The mind behind the music

"The power of music. Music stimulates. Music cheers you up. Music calms. Music softens. Music strengthens. Music heals. Music lives. Music learns. Music expresses what words and gestures cannot do. Music is emotion. Music is power.

There is a Power button on every sound system. Power to start and to live, to hear, to feel, to taste. Music gives color to life. Music is the soundtrack to life. Music is passion.

Music is my passion, my driving force. And not only for me. Music belongs to everyone. Music connects, music communicates. Everywhere and always. Any place whatsoever. Whatever time. Music is there.

Music is your travel companion and Tunify the leitmotif. Thanks to Tunify you can hear the right music at the right time in the right place. And that's how it should be. "
