This year the Music & Sound Awards was held at the Troxy, an Art Deco styled concert venue in Tower Hamlets, hosted by comedian Tom Webb and featured live music from The Heavy and emerging band Duologue.
A relatively new ceremony now in its third year, the Music & Sound Awards recognizes and celebrates the indispensable role and contribution that music and sound design play in the world of visual media.
Aimed at professionals working in advertising, film, television branding and programming and gaming, the awards are there to reward those who had been involved in the creation, composition, sourcing, licensing, briefing and / or production of music and sound design for any visual media broadcast released in the UK over the last year.

Bucks Film composer David Arnold stole the show this year winning two awards.
The first, for Best Original Composition in a Television Programme, praised Arnold’s work with fellow composer Michael Price on the soundtrack for the second series of, BBC drama, Sherlock.
Competition for this title came from John Lunn for Downton Abbey Series 3, Rob Lane The Last Weekend, Jessica Dannheiser 3 Minute Wonder — Dragonfly and Kevin Sargent We’ll Take Manhattan.

David Arnold was also later honoured at the ceremony with the inaugural Outstanding Contribution to Music and Sound award.
Although he couldn’t make it to the awards show himself due to a deadline, he passed on his thanks in a brief and modest message.
“Ours is a team sport, and the amazing contribution my orchestrators , programmers, engineers and mostly musicians provide do so much to make me look good.
I hope you have a successful and enjoyable night and I promise to try to live up to the award by continuing to produce work worthy of it.”
