About the location
Blackfish Sound is the culmination of the years of experience of Michael Frost and Michael Foster. In 2007 we incorporated and started this adventure. The name, Blackfish Sound, comes from Michael Frost’s experiences on the waters off of British Columbia’s rich coastline and conjures images of Orcas. Blackfish Sound held a place in Michael’s heart, and sound is a homophone that describes Michael’s other love, sound.
Michael Frost and Michael Foster have turned their love and passion for music and sound into the recording services company Blackfish Sound. Other ventures have taken Michal Frost away from the helm, but Michael Foster has continued the legacy that we started together.
The passion for music and sound is evidenced in Blackfish Sounds rich and diverse portfolio. We have always put the project and artist first. The ultimate goal is to help the artist achieve their creative vision. We bring knowledge, passion, experience, and equipment to make any sound project the absolute best that it can be and help you achieve your potential.
