Learn, excel and innovate.

Dan Smith

Technical Director at Studio Open House

I graduated from Musitechnic in Audio Production Techniques in 2011, and have since established a solid professional foundation to be able to work in today’s market in all aspects of sound and audio recording. Recipient of the prestigious Fred Sherratt Award from Musicompte for excellence in the field of audio recording and mixing, I joined Musitechnic in 2012 as a teacher and then as Technical Director in 2019. I also started my own business in 2014, Studio Open House, with my life partner, Caroline Mailhot.
I’ve worked on multiple projects in all spheres of audio, from sound recording and mixing of music tracks with different musical genres, to post-production and recording of complete albums. Through my knowledge, experience and way of being, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with many talents, including Geneviève Leclerc, Ryan Kennedy, Lulu Hughes, Marie-Elaine Thibert, Caro Bé, Geneviève Racette, Jacques Rousseau, Andrea Beaton, Oh My Snare !, Bullet In The Head, Angle of Attack and many other local artists and bands. In parallel, I specialize in audio post-production for video: voiceovers, jingles and sound design for numerous clients, such as the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), LOL:) – TVA, ParDeux e-learning, King Communications, Panache Studios and many others.
