My name is Erik Sikkema, and I am in the recording business for over 30 years.
Besides recording, editing and mastering I am interested in musicology of sound production.
I have worked as recording and balance engineer with international artists throughout Europe. I am most known for my expertise in organ recordings, but I have been as well involved in many orchestral and chamber music recordings. Many of these productions can be found on my website, but that list does not include all my productions.
I have worked behind the scenes for the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra as assistant engineer, made concert recordings for radio broadcast and worked as a sound engineer for TV productions with music, for example Mozart Requiem, Eric Ericson's Chamber Choir, conducted by Eric Ericson, and I assisted with or edited other projects for different companies.
I have worked in the USA, Great-Britain, Estland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
My recordings have been released on many labels, including Philips, Erato, Telarc, BIS, Nonesuch, Koch-Schwann, Capriccio, CPO, Fidelio, Finlandia, Musica Sveciae, Proprius, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Organeum, Gothic, Loft, Etcetera, Motette, Astree and others.
