Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.

— Confucius

Once upon a time

Music was still in the background

We started out as a technical provider of background music for restaurants and spas. Music didn’t remain ‘background’ for long. Two decades of working with music has attracted brilliant music thinkers and creatives to our company. Today, we are a leading music consultancy in North America, helping clients across the globe create distinctive sensory experiences through strategic and creative use of music.

A giving spirit

At the heart of our company is a mission to elevate the human experience. It is evidenced in what we do for clientele, how we care for people, and why we contribute to local community, including these amazing organizations and initiatives:

• Canadian Blood Services
• Canadian Cancer Society
• Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund
• Ceol Kids
• Chai Lifeline Canada
• City of Hope (through the Oscar and Evelyn Overton Charitable Foundation)
• Diabetes Canada
• Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services
• Doane Uschool
• Harmony Project
• MusiCounts
• Rancho Relaxo
• Right to Play
• The Daily Bread Food Bank
• The Regent Park School of Music
• WE Charity
