Nikolas Babic

Sound Designer/Music ProducerLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I am a composer and sound designer based in West London. Through my musical career, I have developed a thorough knowledge of Sound Design, Composition, Mixing and Audio Restoration. I can use the following programs to a high level: Pro Tools Ultimate, Logic X, Ableton 10, Wwise, RX 7 (Izotope), Max 7, Maschine, Unity. I also have completed ABRSM Grade 8 Classical Guitar and Grade 5 Theory. I also play bass and drums to a high level. I’ve composed music and sound for short films and installations while freelancing in audio restoration and I’m now looking for some sound training to apply and develop my skills in a professional production environment. In my spare time I produce a variety of electronic music – soon to be released on a label.
Projects
  • Liza Radlov - A Video About Eggs
    Liza Radlov - A Video About EggsA Video About Eggs was shown as part of 'Truth Pool' - a multidisciplinary art exhibition set at Copeland Gallery, Peckham. Projected through water, the video represents shark embryos eating each other in the womb. It consists of two parts, only one of which I soundtracked. Liza saw this segment not only as abstract, but as educational and fact based, so wanted to contrast this with melancholy music to create some dark humour. Also, some post-processing was done to give the impression the sound

The bodies of people, bodies of water, and the bodies used in international waterside development marketing.'
  • Horror Vacui - Matteo Zamagni (Re-score)
    Horror Vacui - Matteo Zamagni (Re-score)Taken from alt-o.com/Horror-Vacui: Taking place in the current unfolding global crisis, the film explores the geological self-similar formations of Earth and the frenetic hyper-development attained by mankind; It reflects upon the alienation from nature and the resulting break of the harmonious balance of life. By apposing computer generated images and real-world footage the video blurs the distinction between reality and a digital recreation of it, questioning the act of perceiving and the bia
  • Grace Black - Eels
    Grace Black - Eels'Eels tells a tale of 2 sites through stop frame animation and puppetry. Set in various locations above and below the thames, the animation uses imagery and objects gathered over the past year, largely from river beaches around the Rotherhithe/Surrey Quays and Deptford part of the Thames. The narrative is loosely inspired by the news of the City's cocaine consumption habits affecting the behaviour of European eels, long term inhabitants of the Thames' waters. Eels are a meal synonymous with a fo

    Sound DesignerUNDRGRND Sounds
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    I currently create sample packs aimed at electronic music producers who require genre- specific sounds. In this role I utilise a full range of techniques such as Foley, sampling and synthesis to try and create a unique sound palette for the pack while keeping within the style of the genre at hand. The content of the packs includes every aspect of song creation from SFX to kick drums, to allow the user to create a whole song with just one pack.

    HostNavrtar
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    Navrtar is a VR bar that allows users to experience a free roaming VR experience with the added feel of a bar atmosphere. I work a customer service role, being a guide for the customers during their booking. This means explaining the content of the experiences, giving clear instructions to first time users, fixing issues with equipment and generally managing large groups of people as quickly and professionally as possible. A bonus is the chance to hear how audio works in VR as VR audio is a possible career path for me later on.
