Cimo’ was born in Florence on 29 October 1977.
In his youth he
approached classical music through his studies of the violin, recorder and
musical theory. He soon discovered its dark side, belonging to the
exponents of the cultured avant-garde of the '50's and '60's, and as a
result began to experiment with tapes and various effects. Then, he moved
to modern electronic music
from the German cosmic movement of the '70's and followed the different
branches borne from there. In that period he approached synthesis through
the use of analog synthesizers and sequencers.
the following years, he studied and taught himself guitar and piano and he
was interested, in parallel with electronic music, in several other
musical genres having a particular preference for psychadelic music,
progressive and jazz-rock. In this period he also enjoyed some young bands
deepened his knowledge of electro-acoustic music, concrete music and
enriched his musical background and repertoire by experimenting with
ethnic acoustic instruments and field recordings.
1996, he attended a course in cinematography, where he learnt the
fundamentals of direction, shooting and editing. He undertook the role of
assistant director for a period of time and filmed and produced a number
of short films characterized
by the use of longlenght shots.
Since 2001 he adopted the pseudonym ZEIT and set up the "MAG"
home-studio from where he recorded music and videos. Respectively from
2001 and 2002 he recorded but as yet these recordings remain unpublished,
two CD-rs "Cosmic Trails" and "Probing the Depths".
The foundations of these musical works are mainly electronic distinguished
by a marked Teutonic sound.
the magic meeting with Alio Die led him to the thresholds of Sunja.
