Karim Blondy started working as a sound technician in radio and theater in the United States before pursuing his audio training at Musitechnic in 1999. Since then, he has worked as a technician in studio, on set, in post-production, and in live events.

In addition, Karim Blondy is a musician and has performed over a hundred shows across Quebec with different groups. He has composed for other artists, short films, and web series. After spending a dozen years at Radio-Canada, he embarked on new challenges, including capturing orchestral concerts and developing an audio application “Frequency Test” for iPhone. Fascinated by history and sound recording, he wrote a book on microphones for Musitechnic, as well as fifty articles for the school’s website before working in architectural acoustics and becoming a sound engineer for the City of Montreal.

In recent years, Karim Blondy has recorded and mixed albums for artists of various styles (jazz, classical, pop, and metal) and written technical articles on audio in classical music for the Canadian magazine La Scena Musicale. Today, he is back at Radio-Canada after serving as academic director at Musitechnic, where he has been teaching for over fifteen years.
