Laboratories and studios

Hildegard laboratory


In this laboratory, thanks to a collection of sound materials, students conduct sound-material recording projects for composition and Foley in the framework of the creative sound recording course.

Mixed Music Laboratory


This laboratory allows students enrolled in composition and sound creation to conduct projects requiring physical production (wood, metal, microcontrollers, and so on) with performers and electronics (real-time, deferred-time processing). By way of a quadriphonic transmission system the work carried out in this laboratory primarily involves mixed music, augmented traditional instruments as well as performative sound installations. A piano is also available to students.

Multitrack studio and spatialization laboratory


In the Faculty of Music’s professional multitrack studio (Pro Tools), students (notably those in jazz combos) discover the rudiments of sound production and of studio techniques used in a professional setting.

The studio is complemented by a research laboratory allowing for the sound distribution through a device consisting of 32 independent loudspeakers in the shape of a dome, a valuable work tool for digital music and mixed composition.

Studio hexa


This electroacoustic composition studio possesses a 16-speaker array in order to create works that explore the performance space. Tailor-made software, SpatGRIS, was created by the Groupe de recherche en immersion spatiale to enable three-dimensional spatial writing for each of the tracks in a sequencer.

Octophonic studio and video music laboratory


This studio for the composition of video music, used in the composing for the screen programs. as well as in digital music and mixed music, has a transmission system enabling octophonic sound and 5.1 as well as a screen allowing for visual feedback. Students can experiment here with the marriage between concrete music, electroacoustics or musical algorithms and experimental-video creation processes.



This laboratory is used by digital-music ensembles (notably the Ensemble d’oscillateurs) and students interested in modular-synthesis systems (Eurorack, Dotcom).



This laboratory, with its soldering stations, allows students to carry out projects in digital instrument making (microcontrollers, augmented instruments, sound installations).

Lieu Formes·Ondes


This hall, central to the Faculty, is devoted to research creation and allows for the presentation of sound installations and manifestations of performance art, besides playing host to creation residencies.

Video music laboratory (GRIV)


This laboratory allows for experimenting in new technological approaches in music (virtual reality, artificial intelligence) and in video (mapping, 3D). It is here that the GRIV (Groupe de recherche en immersion vidéo) operates.

Multiphonic studio (GRIS)


Electroacoustic composition studio with a ten-speaker transmission system. This is the location where GRIS (Groupe de recherche en immersion spatiale) operates.

Acoustics laboratory (GRIP)


This laboratory enables students to carry out experiments in acoustics and psychoacoustics applied to music as part of lab time for courses MUS1300 and MUS3321. It is also the location where GRIP (Groupe de recherche sur l’interprétation au piano) does its data collection.

Learning studio, monitored drumming


In this studio it is possible to make a multitrack recording of a student’s performance during class time. This teaching method makes it possible to isolate certain features of the drummer’s playing so that teacher and student can accurately identify the strengths and weaknesses of the performance.

Learning studios, jazz combos

B-865, B-869, B-879

Three spaces equipped so that our many jazz combos can rehearse and record.



Recording set that enables capturing and documenting installations and performances in digital music and mixed composition.
