Canadian-controlled firms release over 80% of Canadian-content recordings annually.


 

Nowadays, you can carry an entire orchestra in a small black box, along with every other sound you can imagine. Electronic Music Composer Alice Bernier's studio isn't much bigger, but her sounds are phat. She's techno baby! But even the most sophisticated instruments in the world are only as good as the people operating them. Alice's finger brings her cyber-musicians to life on CD and the Internet.

Alice would love to see a place where all kids could access the high-tech toys used in her field. When she's not at the keys creating music, Alice is promoting her album. She is working on bringing her music to Europe.


Did you know? In Canada, more than one third of music industry professionals work independently or on a freelance basis.


Being shy isn't the right mix for Alice's job, so she overcame this aspect of her personality. There was no choice. You have to talk to sell. Thanks to modern technology, she has friends and contacts worldwide.
