Studio

History

pollution lake sound is basement recording studio located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The focus of my work is engineering, mixing, mastering, album packaging, and websites for musicians.

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 artists from all over Manitoba and commercially released a number of singles, EPs and full-length albums.

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