  • About me


    Giovanni Zof is an Italian composer aged 25. Starting as a violin player, his music has been shaped by his love for the orchestra as well as a growing passion for electronic music.

    His works range from solo pieces to large ensemble and orchestra, where most of them are characterized by a close collaboration with performers in order create new and exciting blend of acoustic instruments and electronic textures. Example of these are “From Friul” for large ensemble and theremin, written for thereminist Lydia Kavina, and “You will know yourself” for small ensemble, electronics and visuals.

    While many influences are often combined in his music, Giovanni has developed a strong interest in storytelling that has been shaped in many collaborations and has become a central part of his production. In the past few years, he wrote music for films such as “The last crossroad”, selected in more than ten festival across Europe, and art films “Spirea” and “Just and oyster without a pearl”.

    Along with his studying and works in composition, Giovanni developed also strong skills in music production which have become part of his compositional process.

    Dealing with a variety of different projects such as films, exhibitions and performances allowed him to develop a strong ability to adapt and change his process and workflow.

    In the last two years Giovanni has been commissioned also for an increasing number of jingles and music for advertising by brands such as Helbiz, Passoni design and Ksenia security. These works have taken part of marketing campaigns and aired on national tv such as Sky.

    Giovanni studied composition in Milan at “Giuseppe Verdi” conservatory and composition for films at “Scuola Civica Claudio Abbado”. He is currently doing his final year of Master’s in composition at Trinity Laban in London.
