Sound designer and musician Tim Sikora established himself at an early
age as an avid musician and composer. Learning acoustic guitar as a
child he sought out a broad spectrum of influences studying many
different musical styles. Multi-track recording soon followed. He began
experimenting with a 4-track tape recorder, the Tascam Portastudio 414
Mk2. By his mid-teens, he needed more so he sold his car to fund the
upgrade to a digital multi-track recorder, the BOSS BR1180 hosting '64'
tracks. Over the years he played with, composed with, and recorded many
friend and family musicians. He transitioned to recording on a PC
experimenting with various multi-tracking DAWs.
Following another of his interests, Tim spent time studying at Vermont
Instruments School of Lutherie. While there he hand-crafted a unique
cross-over classical/steel string guitar that has found its voice in
many musical pieces thereafter.
Tim also spent time learning ProTools and mic placement techniques
recording live Jazz and orchestral concerts with audio engineer and
music producer David Sykut.
From there it wasn’t long before he discovered his interest in sound
design using Adobe Audition, Avid ProTools and audio repair/restoration
with Izotope RX5 Post Production Suite. Most recently he’s been working
with the Boldrush team collaborating on multiple viral internet videos
gaining 10’s of millions of views, along with other audio projects.
Elements of Sound Ltd is the business result of Tim’s lifetime of
passion for music and sound.
