Alumni Update: Nick Londono, Audio Production and Engineering
Graduated From: Audio Production & Engineering Diploma (2006)
Nick Londono is a musician, producer, and composer, who says that ‘he’s in the business of making things sound good.’
Nick taught himself to play piano and guitar when he was in his early teens, and eventually was accepted to perform with the Youth Symphony Orchestra, where he learned classical theory and performance. That love of music led him to Metalworks Institute’s Audio Production & Engineering Program, from which he graduated in 2005.
Nick was focused on studio production after leaving Metalworks in 2005, working with artists such as Danielle Watters, Dahlia Fernandes, Shyann, Hilary Weaver, Kendal Thompson, Code Revival, and many more. At the same time, he was developing his own career as an artist, touring with a number of different artists, and opening for the likes of renowned DJ Girl Talk. At the 2014 Marty Awards, presented by the Mississauga Arts Council, Nick was honoured with the Emerging New Media Artist of the Year Award. This year (2016), Nick is nominated in the Established Music category.
In addition to his work as an artist and producer, Nick has also branched in to the world of composing for film and television, as well as motion picture sound design. His television work has been heard on MTV, MuchMusic, CHUM-FM, Bravo, CBC, and the Disney Channel. He has overseen the production of a number of film soundtracks, including The Day The Old Man Knocked from Bravo, Six Reasons Why from Thinkfilm and Archon Defender from Moonlit Road Entertainment. His work has been featured at over 18 International film festivals, including the Long Island International Film Expo, WorldFest Houston International Film Festival, Big Apple Film Festival, Canada International Film Festival and the Ottawa International Film Festival.
