Every studio's story  has a basic necessity underlying it. ClearLightSound's reason for existing is to make professional quality music creation available and accessible to anyone. We have worked on a wide range of musical styles and configurations. Mixing, mastering and restoration for all musical genres are part of the studio's services. In addition, CLS's high definition multitrack remote recording capabilities make it possible to record any form of music in any location. The studio also functions as a concert venue, and we are able to broadcast high quality audio and video LIVE over the internet at http://www.justin.tv/etnada. Our many presentations and broadcasts can be seen on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/etnada0 Elaborately set video shoots can be staged here as well... Through creative imagination, ever more inspired and fun applications are being found for the space.

With its unique poly-rainbow fence and deck, ClearLightSound is an easily recognizable area landmark. Located in an early 20th century three story home that was formerly the Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Centre in Winnipeg, the recording area is now in what was the main meditation hall. It is roomy yet intimate. The walls are adorned with a fine art photographic exhibit of E.T. Nada's work. On the other side of the wall is the control room containing both the sound recording console and the graphics production equipment. The over all recording and production space is functional, comfortable and elegant. Because it is in a home, it's easy to relax and enjoy the musical experience.
