Mathieu's #1 passion for nearly a decade has been producing, writing, and recording music, a passion that's only expanded since graduating from Centennial College's Music Industry Arts & Performance program, an educational experience that has helped him diversify by working from all corners of the recording studio.
Offered services include Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Producing, Session Editing, and Session musician services for live drums, guitars, bass, keys, or background vocals.

Interview with Nuclear Sound
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The attached file "June" is a song I worked on with a local singer. Before I offered my help, only about a minute of the song existed with the most basic instrumental accompaniment. I'm super proud of how well Em and I worked together to add structure to the song, tweak some lyrics and phrasing, and increase depth and instrumental complexity to make the song what it is now.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to create something incredible from nothing. Having a piece of music out in the world that I can say I've had a hand in making is an incredible thing. Plus, I get to meet and work with some amazing people in the music industry while that happens.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started early in high school by messing around with some basic gear my dad owned, which was around 2012 or so. After enrolling in a college program to become a better, more well-rounded music producer from 2014-2017, I found audio work at the Glenn Gould Studio, and kept finding opportunities through the CBC. I'm now a freelance audio technician, have a weekly credit with CBC Radio One's "Because News", and dedicate all my days off work to improving as a musician and studio engineer.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Creative decision-making. I have a lot of confidence in what works in music and what doesn't. I love subtly tweaking musical layers, and having them work together to create something familiar, yet unique.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My C24 is my pride and joy. Running Pro Tools HD, my board can record up to 16 inputs, which can cover anything from a single vocalist to a live band off the floor.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of my clients are singer-songwriters that either need help to finish writing their material, or who want to make a fully-produced track out of what they've written on a single instrument. For a lot of my clients, I act as their "Backing band", tracking my own drums, bass, guitars, and keys, and writing parts for those instruments that support the singer's performance.
