Tim Schellenbaum, an award-winning sound designer, died on July 25, 2019 at the Mary Manning Walsh Home. He was 60. LaMama posted a tribute to him on their website:
He was a musician, composer, sound engineer, and sound designer. He has been described as a quiet ambassador of Americana in its purest sense.
While attending The University of New Mexico he became known for his experimental work on WKNM radio and recording and promoting punk music. He stayed true to his roots and wrote music that honored his craft and his Hispanic heritage with his bands Zozobra, Me Wee Beastie and EIEIO.
He worked at numerous downtown venues including The Kitchen, The New Federal Theatre, Theatre for The New City, and PS 122, and was the sound engineer for the Brookfield/Winter Garden space at the World Financial Center.
Tim was the recipient of 1998 and 2000 Obie Awards and a 2007 IT Award for collaborative design.
