Hi, I am Daniele Zerbini, that sounds like a syncopated 6/8 name, but
please call me Dizzy, that is “D plus Z”, “noisy”, and reminds me of
one beloved trumpeter.
I live in Milan, northern Italy.
I make my day as a multimedia-frontend-web developer & backend
integrator, and it goes with it that I learned to love coding although
I lack of academic CS education. My education was quite eterogeneous
and took a skew informal path. After my diploma in scientific high
school, I was trained in architecture and CAD programming. But I never
got my degree, and rather, following a constant passion for music from
age 10 (I grew up along with the 70’s generation after all), during my
study&work life, I got a music theory license, an audio engineering
diploma at SAE - now I am poor for that - and a 3-year classic
composition path at an academic musical institution in Milan. I have a
root of 5 years of classic piano education, but I played guitar for
years, and enjoy to play the accordion.
I occasionally had sound design and music for media commitments, not
related with my main job, and practice some field recording, but I am
quite new to the modular world, that I discovered while trying and go
deeper in the sound design process.
At the end of the day, I come to terms with the fact that music is not
my professional full-time job, but it was intended to be my
everlasting serious hobby. Naked and pure.
I like to listen to all music genres, but I particularly like jazz and
progressive rock, trip-hop and abstract electronica.
Then, I love classical, avant-garde and “contemporary-classic” music
conmposers, mostly Ligeti, Grisey, Donatoni, Lachenmann, and
Apart from music, I love sailing, and watching movies (although I miss
the story sometimes, to listen more carefully to the sound work).
I like to see have one common point with Andrew. I am used to practice
at my piano late in the evening. Although, since Rack crashed on my
head, I am more dedicated to patching virtual cables around and amaze
myself with waveforms spreading like blessings all around.
