CONGRATULATIONS to the participants of our Winter 2021 Remote Recording Workshop for completing the course with honors.
THANK YOU to our supporters and co-producers who enabled these classes be FREE of charge to the community. We now have even more musicians and music to look forward to for Tilted Axes and all other kinds of new projects in our community to present to the public.
Look out for spring sessions coming in April.
“Patrick Grant is a fantastic teacher and delightful musician. Music creates community, and Patrick encourages this beautifully in his workshops.
“…(an) insightful and inspirational class!”
“I know more now than I did before. This mini course gives me more confidence moving forward with my recording endeavours!”
“Thank you for your excellent how-to that was both inspirational and grounded in immutable properties of sound. You offered a simple useful approach for using the DAW – Ableton – that I already have more effectively, and opened doors to new creative possibilities. Yay!”
“THANK YOU, Patrick, for expanding the possibilities! MANY questions answered. We proceed…”
“Thanks so much! It was great. I learned a lot!”
“This class has been eye opening and ear opening…fun and surprising in many ways.
“I learned many important aspects of working in the studio and with others that will now become a foundation. You have a great way of distilling the essentials in every topic that you presented. I came away with a much more solid understanding of the tools and components of my studio as well as your enlightened protocols for remote collaboration… I would definitely participate in any workshop that you might offer in the future.”
“You’re super talented at the online format. I had a terrific time, and I’m smarter too.”
“Patrick is a great instructor – patient and welcoming while keeping our group on task and focused.”
“The workshop provided valuable insights into the art and science of sound recording. I had no prior experience recording music and he showed me the fundamentals of getting a good sound from my instrument.”
“Patrick Grant’s class provided me with a great introduction to recording on my computer. I really appreciate his time, effort, and expertise. I especially enjoyed our guitar ensemble recordings! I highly recommend this class to anyone who might be interested in it.”
“Thank you Patrick! I’ve learned a lot from you. As always.”
“Many thanks! This is very helpful. Time to dream of wires…”

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL “…It took a generation of composer-players who grew up comfortable with both classical forms and rock timbres—composers like Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham, Tim Brady and Patrick Grant —to usher the electric guitar into the classical fold. Two releases—Mr. Branca’s “The Third Ascension” (Systems Neutralizers), and “Potential Differences” (New Focus) by the young guitar quartet Dither, both out now—offer an intriguing snapshot of new concert works for electric guitars.”

“Last year, Alternative Nation praised composer-guitarist Patrick Grant’s album, Fields Amaze and other sTRANGE music. And it turns out that the applause was indeed well deserved, as the album has three entries in the running for selection for the 62nd Grammy Awards taking place January 2020 – Best Contemporary Instrumental Album (for Fields Amaze), Best Instrumental Composition (for “Keeping Still”), and Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance (for “Imaginary Horror Film – Part 2″).
Described as ‘Unexpected rhythms, outside of the box instrumentation and a completely, uncompromising barrage of artistic individuality’ by Alt Nation’s Joe Hughes, several genres are touched upon concerning Grant’s original style/approach, which blends together instrumental, experimental/avant-garde, prog, jazz, and soundscapes…”
