ABOUT

Located in the art centric neighbourhood of Little Italy in Montreal QC, Studio PM was custom-built for multi platinum producer Pierre Marchand (Sarah McLachlan, Rufus Wainwright, etc.) and named after a suggestion of fellow Montrealer, Leonard Cohen.

This modern construction combines a homey feeling, note the fireplace, with the capabilities of a world class recording studio. Its naturally lit 2500 sq. ft space (230m2) can host up to 25 musicians and producers working simultaneously from 4 acoustically isolated rooms (control room, main live room, isolation booth and living room) while never losing eye contact. The instrument and gear collection is impressive and includes a Fazioli grand piano as well as a 1920’s Steinway upright.

The carefully designed acoustics of the main recording room consists of a unique combination of absorptive wall materials at ground level and reflective surfaces as we get closer to the wooden ceiling resulting in a warm and extremely well balanced room sound.

Extensive lighting, high ceiling, depth and catwalk in the recording room make it an ideal location to film and shoot performances.
