    In the heart of the Laurentian Mountains, an hour North from the city of Montreal, rests a legendary world class recording studio that is now abandoned. Le Studio Morin Heights designed and built by André Perry in 1974 was the center of creation for much of the music that made it into the 1980's and 1990's mainstream. From The Police's "Every Breath You Take" to Cat Stevens, to David Bowie, to Keith Richards, to Sting, to Rush, to Bryan Adam's "Cuts Like a Knife" and to the Bee Gees "Saturday Night Fever", Le Studio Morin Heights was where it all came together. Le Studio Morin Heights ceased it recording operations in 2001, and has since been stripped of all its musical heritage. There are no more Gold Records ornamenting the walls, no more SSL mixing console, no more floor to ceiling outboard gear, no more tape machines, and pretty much nothing left to record any audio. The only thing musical that's left is the Yamaha grand piano, still standing guard in the main room. Ever since we have been making music, we always dreamed of one day recording something at Le Studio Morin Heights, while over-looking Lake Perry through the live room's bay window. Unfortunately, the studio has been closed for 10 years now. Even abandoned, you can still feel the vibe of this legendary studio is still present, and just being there gave us goosebumps. There is a unique atmosphere and you can still sense it's spirit. It feels like the studio's red cedar shingle walls can speak. A couple weeks ago, we decided that we would record the video for an acoustic version of our latest song called "Insomnia". Not just to realize a dream, but also to pay tribute to a legendary Canadian music institution that is no more. Rest in Peace Le Studio Morin Heights. www.theeastonellises.com CC 2011
