Ciao ragazzi! I'd like to call myself Zip Zipper. I wish I had a better singing voice to incorporate into my music, but I typically like instrumentals more, so I'm not too bummed about it. I'm 26. I'm young, stubborn, and driven to experience anything that comes my way. My favorite color is a distant skyline in the dark of night and I love the idea of being suspended on wires, floating around people shopping in a mall.

My top three musical inspirations are Francis Poulenc, Imogen Heap, and most importantly Cirque Du Soleil. My biggest dream is composing for Cirque, but I also dream of composing for all types of media as well. I taught myself how to play the keyboard by ear when I was a small child and am now pursuing composition through formal education. I've been songwriting with GarageBand for about seven years now, so it's the only DAW program that I know the ins and outs of. Other talents that I explore include acting and drawing. I've performed in a couple of theatrical productions and I've also been drawing even before I started teaching myself music. Isn't that neat?!

As for my music, everyone says that it's like the kind of work that Danny Elfman
makes for Tim Burton. I've been told that so many times. I love waltzing time signatures. There's something about the emphasis and division in the oom pah pah that make me feel a sense of passionate apathy or joyful despair. I like minimalism, which portrays subtle development in pure simplicity. But it irks me how simple yet captivating minimalism is, not with just music but all forms of art. How come people adore the beauty in things that are painfully plain? And I like beats and electronic music in general. So if you smush that all together then, collectively, that's what my music sounds like.

If anything about this is appealing to you, then I suggest you take a listen to something of mine. If this biography section isn't likable to the point of being totally intolerable...well...goodbye!

And here's the rest of my music. This categorization won't always be 100% accurate. Basically, each list starts with the newest and ends with the oldest. If it says it has vocals, then that means my voice is being used in it in some way. A starmeans that I'm making a suggestion, but you may very well ignore them all.
