Welcome all musicians!
The Sound Recording Area at McGill University has a long history of successful collaborations with musicians at McGill and in the greater Montréal area. If you’re interested in recording with us, we ask that you please read all of the following carefully so that you understand the range and limitations of the services we offer.
EXPERIMENTAL RECORDING SESSIONS (audio only)
The Sound Recording students need to complete experimental recording projects for their classwork. Most of the time, a high-level product is the result of these recording sessions. The benefit to the Sound Recording student is the opportunity to experiment. The benefit to the artist is a free recording session.
While most of these sessions are very successful, we can not guarantee a final product and we can not guarantee that a student will be available to take your session. Certainly worth a shot!
All genres are very welcome.
When you make your request you may get a reply from an undergraduate (“qualifying-year”) student working in McGill’s Clara Hall & Studio B or an M.Mus. student who can work in any of McGill’s halls or studios.
Email this address to make your request. Include in your email: your contact information, your ideal recording space, your deadlines/dates, information about your ensemble, information about the recording you’d like to make.
