Studio

History

pollution lake sound is a basement recording studio located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. While the focus of my work is engineering and mixing, I also provide mastering, album packaging, graphic design and web services to artists.

The studio started in 1999 in The Pas, Manitoba… it began as a small collection of basic recording gear that I purchased to record my band’s first demo. Since that time, I have worked with a variety of artists and musical styles. I have¬†commercially released a number of singles, EPs and full-length albums.

For samples of my work, check out the demo reel, or flip through the list on the releases page.
