Julian Sanchez (Keys)

Julian ‘Zorsy’ Sanchez is a music composer, producer and performer specialising in digital fusion and ambitious jazz arrangements. Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Julian’s passion for music and gaming began at an early age through his initial reluctance to practice his instruments in favour of completing the latest Nintendo games. He has successfully fused both of his worlds together, having worked on musical arrangements for Nintendo Switch titles such as 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐅𝐮, 𝐕𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 and the animated 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐔𝐧𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞: 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐌𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐞. A classically trained pianist, Julian spent equal amounts of his teen years embarking on journeys within Japanese role-playing video games, and exploring jazz piano. Through these synergies began his interest in performing and composing music for both the video game medium and for his quartet creating a unique and highly individual soundscape.
