Zaak Kerstetter is a music production teacher, DJ and artist who produces downtempo cinematic bass music under the moniker Zenotope. His musical journey began whilst playing guitar in punk bands at high school and continued to develop while living in Japan, where he became involved in and was heavily influenced by the underground noise music scene in Osaka.
- United States, Boulder, Colorado
With an appetite for the absurd, and an admiration for the subversive undertones of underground communities, he continued to experiment with soundscapes, hardware synthesizers and sequencers, and came across Live while living in New York City. Zaak was immediately attracted to the non-linear work flow and the breadth of possibilities that Ableton Live offers. Within six months of discovering Ableton Zaak moved to San Francisco, CA to attend Pyramind’s Audio Production school, where he graduated from the core program. He went on to teach as a faculty member at Pyramind as the Live 101 and 201 instructor.
Currently, Zaak teaches beginner and advanced Ableton Live classes at Art of Audio in Denver, CO, as well as for Pyramid Online. Zaak is the organizer of the Boulder Ableton Live User group which meets every month. When not teaching, Zaak is actively involved in producing and performing his original music and geeking out over his custom live performance setup.
