S.S. Khandalla on their Studio H experience

Posted by Alex Mason

Resize 7.JPGA few weeks back, School of Rock contest champs S.S. Khandalla spent a weekend collecting their prize. Ryan Langdon, Justin Tousignan, Evan Stoney and Danaan Pederson won a recording session in CBC's Studio H with ECMA-winning producer Karl Falkenham.

Stephanie chatted with Ryan and Karl about how recording in the CBC studio was different from recording in a basement in Windsor. "We had no idea what to expect going into a studio that nice," Ryan said. "The electrician who did Studio H probably did a better job. We get shocked by our gear pretty often."

You can hear that interview, and the Studio H recording of the band's song "Rufio" on Monday's Mainstreet. In the meantime, click the picture below to watch the band in an audio slideshow, set to their song "Sleep" (also recorded in Studio H).

Three bands performed for our judges in our inaugural School of Rock contest.
