ABOUT SOURCETONE

Putting the healing power of music at your fingertips.

Malcolm Goodman and Dr. Jeff Berger founded Sourcetone in 2004, a research-driven, health-focused music streaming company. Malcolm’s desire to produce and create music to enhance well-being and Jeff’s long-term commitment to health and growth helped forge the concept for Sourcetone’s vision. From these fundamental ideas, a world-class, interdisciplinary research team developed Sourcetone’s Music Classification System Technology MCST™ evaluative system as a result of years of ongoing research conducted at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School studying the effects of music on health, mood and performance.
