  • Biography
    I am a classically trained pianist turned amateur music producer in 2014. I enjoy infusing piano elements with mellow beats, electronica, and quirky synths in my music. I was first inspired musically to make video game remixes (and still love to), but I also create original content and write excessively long descriptions for my songs. Most of my sound has electronic elements and an overall chilled, ambient vibe. I hope to one day have a career in video game, television, movie, or solo music production. Some of my music can be found on Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, Google Play Music, Amazon, and a few others, so be sure to look me up on your favorite musical app! Let me know if you have any requests or would like to work with me. Video game music is my solace and is pure nostalgic bliss for me. Some favorite VG composers are Uematsu, Mitsuda, David Wise, Kondo, and ...well, too many to name!

  1. Zisotto here! Just wanted to thank you both so much for your very thoughtful and kind words. I did this mix about a year ago and to receive such appreciative praise is very encouraging to me. This was actually one of the first remixes I ever did, about 5 or 6 months after I learned my first (and only) DAW, Cubase. I'm really thankful for this community and the staff, fellow remixers, and fans for making it what it is. I haven't really experimented with ambient sounds since this song, and have been trying to develop my own original music and sound which is an infusion of electronica and some other elements which vary from song to song. I remember this song took me over a month to complete, around 60 hours, probably double or triple what I usually spend on a song, because I was meticulously crafting each instrument track, but it was worth it! I'm looking forward to making more vg remixes in addition to my own music, so stay tuned and feel free to follow me on YouTube in the meantime! Thank you again
