Composer and multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Zillner’s beautifully crafted melodies paired with a strong sense of rhythm, create the backbone of his sought after musical style. Born in Salzburg, Austria he is now based in Los Angeles, collaborating with artists internationally and manifesting his sonic identity.
Instrument repertoire includes Saxophone, Flute and the Armenian Duduk.
Besides improvised solos I also offer woodwind arrangements, re-arranging of songs, sound design and beatmaking.
