Known as Zap’al’odd aka Zap Alnino and numerous other pseudonyms, I want to share my musical experience, by writing as an author for Sweet Headache. Let me introduce myself:
Music is my passion and I go with the flow. Whether it is calm or loud, slow or fast, soft or hard, or sweet medium. Music simply makes me feel good, motivates me and makes me think of various topics and ways of life. When I have a day without music, something is missing.
I am not a great speaker. That is why I make music to express myself.
In my opinion, there is an artful track in every genre of music and my motivation is to combine Classic, Rock and Electronic Music.
In my childhood, I have learnt to play the piano and nowadays I play keyboard. In 2003, I started to play the turntables and in 2005 came my first gig at a Veteranen – Party at Club Casino in Bad Ischl. My biggest success as a DJ has been a 3 hour set at the Sonne, Mond und Sterne Festival 2007 and a 9 hour set at Club Casino 2008. Since 2007, I have been producing my own tracks and since 2011 I am an audio engineer.
I love nature and its sounds, which I record and use for my productions. Therefore, a Zoom H2 Recorder is my favorite technical gadget. Especially the combination of nature and “human made artificialty” inspires me.
Motto: “Be critical and do scrutinize!”
