Alejandro Zak

Alejandro Zak (b.1983) is a saxophonist and composer. He runs his own project, which performs arrangements of music by Stravinsky, Piazzolla, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin; as well as compositions by Zak himself. Collaborations with outside projects have included the Marcos Basso Jazz Ensemble (modern jazz nonet), Ezequiel Valdez Septet (jazz fusion), the Cumbia Grande Orchestra and performances with rock/pop bands such as Operadora (electro-pop trio), folk-rock songwriter Salomar and Morbo & Mambo.

Other original compositions by Zak can also be found in theatre productions, television, videogame soundtracks, and both full-length and short films. His work has also been used in advertisements and musical screens for radio and TV. Zak attended Facultad de Bellas Artes (La Plata State University) and has received further instruction from musicians such as Oscar Moyano, Ernesto Nuciforo, Alejandra Gozzi, Pablo Ledesma, Pepe Angelillo, Jorge Armani and Ricardo Cavalli.

He participated in the Astor Piazzolla International Festival, the 3rd Iberoamerican Conference of Musical Research, and the Mar del Plata International Film Festival- just to mention a few. As an arranger, he worked in "Fusiones" (Armani Trio + Banda Municipal de Música de Mar del Plata), at the Teatro Colón. As a session musician, Zak can be heard in the original recording of the music for the play "Qué Noche Bariloche" by Fabio Alberti and Diego Capussotto and with rock bands “Luz París” and “Locales”.

International jobs as saxophonist have included performances in the Carnival Triumph cruise orchestra (Galveston, Texas, USA) and the Yuku Art Space, in Guiyang, China.
