Workshop | Intro to Reaper

Wednesday February 8th 2023 | 5:30-8:30PM


Reaper is an affordable audio production software that is primarily designed for musicians but can be extremely useful for artists of all kinds.

We’ll learn about the software’s interface, the basics of audio recording, and the equipment needed to make a variety of good quality recordings (music, podcasts, sound works, dubbing, narration, etc.).

We will also look at some notions of audio manipulation and arrangement to allow the artists and workshop participants present to make sound works with ease.


Please bring a laptop with the latest version of Reaper. You can download Reaper for free off their website.

Simone Provencher

Simone Provencher is a multi-instrumentalist and improviser who has been active in the experimental music community for several years. She first made her name with the French post-punk band VICTIME, with whom she has been performing for the past five years. In 2021, she began a more exploratory approach, focusing more on improvisation and releasing “Mesures” on Michel Records, and “Album”, the result of a collaboration with Hull-based percussionist and producer Olivier Fairfield.

Parallelly, she pursues projects with a media arts approach, obtaining a grant from the City of Gatineau for her project “Nouvelle observation”, in which she works on the sonification of video signals using custom-made synthesizers. She is currently continuing the development of new tools through her residency at DAÏMÔN.
