Hiko (Nico Fanari) – Musician, Sound designer and Sound engineer.

I started my studies on classical piano at the age of eight in the public music school (Conservatorio G.P. Palestrina) in Cagliari. Being fascinated since early age by sound devices and audio recordings, I moved to Milan to study Sound Engineering at the SAE Institute. I start then combining my musical background with the new acquired technical skills. Started first as a sound programmer and studio assistant in various recording studios, I got later the chance to make significant experience as arranger and sound engineer working with amazing artists and musicians as well as great sound technician from all around Europe. In Berlin, where I’m based since 2010, I start my first works as a Film Sound Designer. I also write, produce and perform music. I’m currently working with several musicians to develop ideas into fully formed records and soundtracks.
