We focus on songs.

We are a music rights company. We meld the creative power of a music publisher with the production and marketing prowess of a record label. And for as long as we've been publishing and recording, we've been placing songs in film and television, creating experiences, defining moments.

We are (mostly) reformed space rockers.

Aporia started because Gord Dimitrieff wanted to put out a space rock album; our space rock days are (mostly) behind us, leaving a group of people who are passionate about music and, more importantly, connecting musicians with audiences through diverse media.

Unsigned artists and demos

If you believe your music is in line with our creative vision, feel free to email links to streams (e.g. SoundCloud / Bandcamp / YouTube) to info@aporia-records.com. We recommend highlighting two or three songs at most.

Any email with attached MP3s will be deleted immediately.

We do not accept demos by post.

Please understand that we are a small company and very busy with our current roster.  We kindly request that you not telephone us regarding demo submissions.

Internship / co-op placement policy

Aporia does not hire interns or co-op students.

We believe that the best internships provide a structured environment in which interns can receive real industry exposure, quality training and evaluation overseen by a supervisor — they are a professional development opportunity for students, not free or cheap labour for an employer.

We appreciate the fact that many post-secondary education programs require students to complete an internship or co-op placement; however, Aporia does not have the resources or infrastructure to offer the type of quality development experience we believe in, and we therefore do not hire interns.

Open source development

Aporia maintains and distributes an open-source PHP library for handling Common Works Registration (CWR) files.
