At the same time they wanted to exchange and therefore modernise their telephone hold music, which orginally was an “ABBA” song. dynamic audio berlin recorded the prompts with a native German voice actress speaking with a Swedish accent. The music was produced inhous by Christian Schneider. Up to this day regular updates are recorded.
