Jean-François Denis, artistic director.

Founded in Montréal in 1990 the label empreintes DIGITALes specializes in electroacoustic music, acousmatic music, and musique concrète. To date the collection includes over 125 titles, by composers from here and abroad.

In 2005, empreintes DIGITALes made the great leap forward from CD to DVD-Audio, which allows the richness and space of the concert hall to be transported to the music lover’s living room. Since 2014, selected recordings are released on Blu-ray.

Through its online shop electrocd.com, it distributes recordings and other forms of publications concerning electroacoustic music. It currently catalogs over 2000 recordings and books; more than 800 of those are available for sale. Moreover, the website allows visitors to listen to thousands of lengthy audio excerpts, and consult reviews, biographies, full-length programme notes, and interviews with composers, performers, and authors.
