Zon Key Zoo

Story

Zon Key Zoo is a one musician project based on the idea that music can be created with a simple computer. I started to make music as a self taught guitar player. I played in many rock bands during the eighties and the nineties as a guitar player & singer. Interested in electronic music, synthesizers and home studio concept, I started to make music on computers after my last band splitted. Then I chose to replace real instruments and performing musicians by machines and softwares. The goal was to focus on soundscapes and music creation. The result is instrumental pieces in the spirit of electronic music pioneers of the 70’s and 80’s, with modern virtual home studio setup. Zon Key Zoo can be found on social networks as Facebook, Reverbnation or Soundcloud and of course on the main streaming platforms like Deezer, Spotify and YouTube (audio only). You can also purchase his singles on Applemusic and Amazon. Zon Key Zoo is a “studio only” project. There are no plans for live shows. https://wzonkeyzoo.wordpress.com

I don't want to change the world. I make music and I'm glad to share it with everyone who enjoy it.

So many songs !!! in so many styles... Maybe "Hell's Bells" from AC/DC and its fabulous intro

really too many bands or artists to mention... Impossible to name only one.

What inspires you to make music?

Everything I hear can become inspiring for making music. Every sound in real life may grow an idea in musical way.

Music is a universal language and we may transmit and share emotions, over words and over frontiers with only few notes...

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I don't and I won't perform in front of an audience. Zon Key Zoo is a computer making music project only.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Due to internet and online platforms, publishing music has never been easier than it is today and anyone can do it, that's a good thing. We can discover hundred of unknown excellent artists on through the web. On the other side, it's getting really hard to be heard among thousands independant artists. That's the actual paradox

What do you think of Drooble?

Drooble is one of those web platforms which allows independant artists to share their stuff and get some feedback.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The marketing rules in musical world... What you have to do, how you have to behave, what you have to show if you want to get a chance to be discovered...

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I support independant artists I like. Not only the local scene... The whole scene !! How ? by playing their songs, by bringing them comments, by sharing their profile...

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

If I had the answer, I probably would have a very large audience... Ah, ah, ah!!

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I don't know who you've never heard... That's really subjective. I may mention few ones I like: "Rick Gordon", "Rockweller" and there are many, many others... among those present on Drooble (and other platforms) I would share "EleKtra RTK" and "Aihara Kotoko".
