Gil Moore is the founder of Metalworks Studios and the drummer for Canadian Music Hall of Fame Inductees Triumph. Our in-depth conversation covers competition and creation, Gil’s time with Triumph as well as starting Metalworks. We also chat about the importance of influence, Home vs. Pro studio’s and we’ll get Gil’s perspective on the evolution of the music industry!
"Metalworks Institute is the educational creation and natural extension of world-renowned Metalworks Studios. Originally established in 1978 as the management hub and creative space for Triumph, Metalworks has expanded over 30 years into a six studio powerhouse and today ranks as Canada’s consummate world-class studio facility. Recognized for an unprecedented 17 years as “Recording Studio of the Year” at the CMW Canadian Music & Broadcast Industry Awards, Metalworks Studios has become the undisputed leader in the recording studio business in Canada. It is little wonder that gold, platinum and diamond record awards from companies like Sony, Warner, and Universal line the corridors at Metalworks.
The educational division of Metalworks was launched in 2005. Metalworks Institute first opened with one available program, Audio Production and Engineering, and sixteen students in attendance. Since then, the enrollment has grown to more than 300 students and 16 full-time programs are now offered. A partnership with the third Metalworks Company, Metalworks Production Group, has allowed our Live Event & Concert Production students to benefit from the same hands-on experience as those studying studio production."
