About
An introduction to recording equipment and techniques for musicians and voice artists.

This workshop will be an interactive, hands-on demonstration of the tools and techniques required to make simple, but high-quality demo recordings. The aim is to equip musicians and voice artists with the information they need to record themselves, a valuable skill in today’s creative markets. The workshop is an overview of the entire recording process: where to buy equipment, equipment basic function, selection of a recording room, microphone positioning, and post-production techniques.

Participants are encouraged to bring the following, if possible:
A laptop computer and their audio software of choice, their portable recording equipment, their instrument/materials for a recent or upcoming recording project.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’keha:ka, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’keha:ka and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
