When ZOOLOOK is not in his studio, you can find the musical artist traveling the globe, covering the reggae music scene for IRIE™ Magazine, and attending film festivals for ReelTV. ZOOLOOK also enjoys sampling cuisine from different countries, reading comic books, and watching movies (especially horror & sci-fi films) that don’t suck.
The inspiration behind Nicholas Da Silva’s artist name, ZOOLOOK, comes from Jean Michel Jarre’s 1984 classic album, ZOOLOOK, an album in which Jean Michel combined an actual band and processed vocal samples recorded in 25 different languages.
