Domenic Sabol & Tympanic Media
Domenic began his recording career on a Tascam 4 track with one SM 57 and a dream. Now he has no four track because someone stole it and the 57 is broken. “I still have the dream,” he says, “but I don’t remember it so well.” As an IMA award winning producer/engineer, the former co-owner of Ava Recording Facility has recorded a vast variety of musical genres, and his work has been released nationally and internationally with artists including Bill Boublitz and Robben Ford (Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell), Kathleen Smith, El Warren Weatherspoon (Santana, Heatwave), Nellie McKay, Leron Thomas (Lauryn Hill), Frank Owens (Musical Director, Apollo Theater, Ret), The Escher Quartet, Composer Alejandro Rutty, Tanya Blount (Sister Act 2), The American Globe Theater, and many more. Domenic also studied cello performance and music composition at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s School of Music, and knows his way around a guitar as well as a studio. As owner and Chief Engineer of Tympanic Media, he keeps busy with projects of all genres, tasked with everything from pre-production, tracking, mixing, editing, mastering and video post. When he’s not doing any of those things, he spends his free time building DIY audio equipment and recording his own music. Otherwise, he retreats to the woods to fly fish with his wife, or spend time with their daughter.
