CiTR is excited to announce it’s May Workshop!

Live Sound Basics: 

An introduction to live sound- hosted by Irene Naidu
Thursday May 29th 7pm-9pm at CiTR Studios


Ever wondered how to do sound for a band in studio? How about at a house party? Wedding? In this introductory workshop, Irene will be going over basic live sound theory! Over the course of two hours she will take participants through the following topics:
  • Signal flow
  • Basic cabling
  • Mic’s and micing
  • Loudspeakers
  • Small mixers and mixing
While the workshop will be held in CiTR studios, the content will be applicable to general live sound- so participants can take the knowledge they learn beyond CiTR.  After the 7pm-9pm workshop, Irene will lead a limited number of participants in carrying out Live from Thunderbird Radio Hell. Giving them the chance to put theory to practice.


Irene has been doing sound for Thunderbird Radio Hell since 2001 and currently works for Presentation Services providing audio visual support for meetings, conferences and trade shows.

On May 21 at the Biltmore Cabaret, CITR 101.9FM & CJSF 90.1FM present Next Music From Tokyo Vol 6. This yearly series is a non profit cross-Canada tour that showcases the best underground and independent music from Japan.

Following with their tradition, Next Music From Tokyo Vol 6 will bring in one of the most popular bands in Japan today: Kinoko Teikoku. Although they made their Canadian debut last year, their unique brand of shoegaze left the fans wanting a return visit immediately.

Doors are at 7:00pm.
