About Kenny Zhao

I'm an artist/producer/composer in LA, trying to make things work. I started a series on YouTube chronicling my experiments, with a strong focus on real-world applications. I cover things like:
- setting up a live performance without a DAW
- using hardware to supplement creative flow (without getting sidetracked)
- recycling old samples and stems into new ideas

I've always felt that learning from full-time teachers is inherently flawed, because teaching takes time away from the experiments that lead to new discovery, AKA the kinds of things worth teaching. So my approach is to document my personal experiences as an active music creator and share them in ways that can hopefully help you in your own creative explorations!
