Zeff on SoundBetter

I studied Piano for almost 17 years, I graduated from one of the most prestigious Conservatory of Italy (G. Rossini Conservatory of Pesaro) and i'm working as a session pianist for 3 years. I recorded in a lot of recording studios in Italy (first on all Milano's Studio 7 in SAE institute) and i'm a full time composer.

I'm a professional Pianist with 17 years of experience, and i will professionaly record everything you need, from Einaudi, to Chopin or a Piano Cover of a pop song.

You can ask me anything you have in mind!

I'm also a composer, i studied classical composition during my 3 years at the Conservatory G. Rossini of Pesaro, in Italy and it's been 7 years since i started composing.

    I had a great experience working with Zeff. His attention to detail, musicianship, and professionalism were excellent. The piano part he recorded for me was extremely expressive and the sound quality was perfect. I am looking forward to collaborating with Zeff on future projects.

    The quality of the performance and recording by Zeff is superb. He really takes the time to study and understand the song and then reinterpret it most beautifully. Zeff is a highly professional pianist whom you should not hesitate to hire for any piano project.

    Zeff is an artist that approaches composition and collaboration with heart and soul. The work he produced was deeply thoughtful and connected to the vision I was hoping to articulate. He is technically gifted and treated my song with care and consideration. A world class piano player and a consummate collaborator. He is now at the top of my list for all future piano parts I might be searching for.

    Zeff recorded the piano track for a new original song. I asked him to provide as much emotion in the recording as possible. He masterfully created a recording that is rich in dynamic expression and full of feeling. I am very happy with his work and would strongly consider him for future projects.

    Zeff est un musicien extrêmement talentueux ... et intéressant. Il possède un toucher plein de nuances, il sait prêter toute son attention à des projets même "polémiques". Il ne rechigne jamais pour modifier un premier jet. Je remercie cet artiste pour ce qu'il rend possible.

    Zeff is nothing shy of a mastermind when it comes to piano. It's as if he has a sixth sense when it comes to creation. He elevated my song to a seriously impressive level. I almost had tears in my eyes listening to what Zeff created. He brought out beauty and intensity in my song that I never even knew was there. I am beyond the moon with joy at the final product that Zeff created. I highly recommend Zeff's services. Hire Zeff for your project and he will bring it to life.

    Zeff made two lovely harpsichord backing tracks for Baroque songs on my forthcoming album 'Songscape', which traces 1,000 years of song. It's hard to find people to play harpsichord on SoundBetter. Many thanks Zeff!

    Sometimes, a composer or a tune-smith knowns exactly what he wants, but, due to his short knowledge of the target music instrument (this is my case as a guitar player looking for the keyboard), he needs the assistance of a person who masters the said instrument. This is what I found by Zeff: he is patient, makes variants for the same musical material. As a pianist, Zeff plays with precision and soberty, but he is able to "modernize" - if necessary - the style and/or the global sound of a work.

    Zeff deserves five stars! not only is he an artist but a very "scrupulous" musician. He knows how to render the spirit of a composition. The task wasn't that easy: transposing guitar music to the piano! I couldn't expect a better rendition, technically and aesthetically speaking.

Interview with Zeff

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: At the beginning of every project i kust study the piece. I print the sheet music and i note everything i need, fingering, dynamics, even the atmosphere i wanna recreate and i really focus on the interpretation. When i feel confidend i'm gonna produce a good performance i record everything. I try to listen to the recording the day after, so i have 'fresh ears' and i can edit a bit the recording (add some reverb, a bit of EQ ecc ecc)

  3. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  4. A: I studied classical piano for 17 years, before in an Academy and i graduated from one of the most prestigious Conservatory in Italy, so i bring to a song a really crisp and clean sound, and a great attention to details, in the dynamics and the phrasing of the piece

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: The musician that ispires me the most is definitely Olafur Arnalds. I love his soft and deep sound, and his simple but really beautiful and interesting melodies. I try to recreate that atmosphere when i play

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: I generally record my client's composition, i follow them step by step so i can perfectly understand the feel they want for the piece, and i record as many times as it takes so they can have the best product (but 90% of the timeafter the first revision the project can be considered complete)
