ZOOLOOK… Soul Rebel with a cause.
Nicholas Da Silva, known professionally as ZOOLOOK, is a multidisciplinary artist and musician. He is an award-winning graphic artist, writer, animator, web developer, musician, and producer. Zoolook’s music is described as evidence of his artistic vision and his ability to push the boundaries of reggae and dub music. He has made a name for himself in the genre by enthralling listeners with his contagious rhythms and appealing tunes.
He is working on his upcoming debut album, STONEFRENGE: Black in Space, a dub reggae music and original sci-fi animated video series.
ZOOLOOK’s STONEFRENGE is his creative universe, where he combines music, lyrics, animations, and film to create an immersive storytelling experience.
ZOOLOOK is currently writing screenplays for two of his comic book series, Dread & Alive and HITLESS. In Dread & Alive: Nine Night, the first of two feature film projects, ZOOLOOK gives us a twisted take on the funerary wake where the veil between the living and the dead, man and spirit, is pulled aside. HITLESS, first released in 2006 as a digital comic and music series for the SONY PSP and Apple iPod, is now being written for a feature film.
ZOOLOOK is also the founder and editor-in-chief of IRIE™ [i·rie], the #1 reggae music magazine on the planet, and the founder and editor-in-chief and producer of ReelTV™ [reel tv], the #1 platform for professional & student digital storytellers and filmmakers worldwide.
The word Zoolook comes from Jean-Michel Jarre’s 1984 album, Zoolook, in which Jarre combined an actual band and processed vocal samples recorded in 25 different languages. The album inspired Zoolook’s journey as a multidisciplinary artist.
