His favorite instrument sounds include pianos, chorus and orchestra as well as electronic synths and effects. shpakOO or Sebastian Szpakowski is originally Polish, born in the VERY early 1980's He had been playing pianos and improvising since he was seven. Initially under a supervision of Music School Professors Dr. Łabno and Dr.
Flak, and then on his own. His first steps into recorded music came around 1996 when his family moved to the USA, at 16. At that time shpakOO got his first ever PC, and began discovering the power of MIDI... His first fully-fledged electronic keyboard was Roland A-90 EX with VE/RD1, and was fully MIDI integrable with sequencer softwares... Throughout High Schools and Universities, along with working towards my majors in Computer Science, Music and Languages, shpakOO continued his hobby as a MIDI composer.
Also, he was a baritone (bass I) in chorales. Practicing with different vocal groups all trying to produce a desired sequence of harmonies proved to be a great way to investigate music composition for shpakOO. In the mean time shpakOO became a researcher in projects involving human genome and cancer research... 2009 was a very fruitful year in shpakOO's career. He published two scientific papers and his first ever music album featuring 6 compositions written between 1999-2009, and remastered in 2009. Read more on Last.fm.
