Four MTFers won ISAbells - the International Sound Awards and more were highly commended runners up in the prestigious event in Hamburg last night.

Pictured above (seated L-R) are Vahakn Matossian (Human Instruments), Tim Palm (DJ Arthro) and Tim Yates (Drake Music and Hackoustic) who won for their brilliant accessible music product LoopFree, invented in the #MTFLabsin Stockholm last year and further developed with the support of an MTF Prize awarded by KTH Innovation.

Standing is Mordechai Braunstein whose CyMagic project brings the experience of music to deaf children and educates about the science of sound and vibration. An early version of CyMagic was tested at MTF Stockholm, then developed and showcased at MTF Pula earlier this year.

Congratulations too to Rani Dar (Play This Wall) and Viktor Löfgren (Thrive - Youth and Integration) whose projects were selected as finalists and runners up - a remarkable achievement.

We’re especially excited that all of the MTF projects that were selected as finalists and winners in the International Sound Awards are about music technology for good - addressing social change, accessibility and bringing communities together.

We’re incredibly proud of the achievements of this brilliant community, using creativity and innovation to make the world a better place.
