Jason Orris - Recording Engineer / Studio Manager

Jason has been owner/manager/engineer of the Terrarium since starting it twenty years ago as a basement studio equipped with a coffee maker and an 8-track. After a year and a half the studio moved into the Washington Avenue location where some of the best sounding rock records in Minneapolis were recorded over the next decade. Ten years ago the studio moved again into its current location where it has expanded to include a mastering suite, natural light, and an espresso machine in addition to the coffee maker. As a man of many hats, Jason was also Business Manager of First Avenue for eight years (1987-1994), tackling the books as well as running sound in the Entry. Jason played bass for Interscope Records recording artists Polara from 1994 to 1998 and played guitar and sang for No Alternative recording artists the Hot from 1997 to 2002. [ Contact Jason Orris ]
