New DIY Parkdale recording studio seeks funding

Coach House Sound is already doing big things in Parkdale. A small group of experienced Toronto engineers and producers have come together to lay the foundation of a DIY studio that fills a need in the music scene "between a big budget space and recording in your bedroom."

While the self funded/scrounged project is already coming along quickly, they've set up an Indiegogo to help with studio expenses and, perhaps most interestingly, a high def web series on how to build a DIY recording studio. Rather than hoarding info, Coach House is hoping to inspire new endeavours worldwide.

In just a short time, Coach House have already reached their initial Indiegogo funding goal of $6000, meaning Building Sound, the web series, is a go, and a considerable chunk of reno and audio costs are covered. They estimate, though, that they'll need a total of $12,000 ($6000 more) to make the Parkdale studio slash community hub happen.

With strong ties to Toronto's music scene, the group have plans to host fundraisers including live events to cover the remaining costs, but clearly every donation will help Coach House's dreams - which include not just a studio but a rehearsal space for touring artists and an event space for live shows, film screenings, art exhibits, and workshops - come true.
