Biography

Ariel Pink (born Ariel Marcus Rosenberg on June 24, 1978) is a musician who is based in Los Angeles. Pink has been recording his music on tape since 1996 but it wasn’t until after he passed a CD-R to the New York-based band Animal Collective that his commercial musical career took off. He attended Beverly Hills High School in Beverly Hills, California. Later attending the School of Art at the California Institute of the Arts.

Married to Alisa Daniels, July 2002 - they divorced in 2005. He lived with Geneva Jacuzzi for seven years until early 2011.

He has since caught the attention of various media sources, especially in the Los Angeles area. As most of his albums are self-made, many of them have never been heard by fans. The only albums which have been commercially released come from his “Haunted Graffiti” series and are thus the best known.

Pink produces and plays almost all of his own music, and is noted for creating drum sounds using primarily his mouth, and sometimes his armpits. His home recording technique gives his music a very sound, to the point where new listeners may mistake the era of his music.

Pink cites R. Stevie Moore—friend, mentor, and “father of home recording”—as one of his major influences. He is sometimes associated with the movement, and could also be considered an embodiment of ‘The New Sincerity’. Pink boasts a cult following and endorsements from more widely known artists such as fellow Paw Tracks artists Animal Collective.

    Stop trashtalking about his personality and just keep your focus on to his music.He has fucking released one of the best albums of decade and pom pom easily separetes itself from among other releases with its odd and elaborate production. Also, Ariel is such a gentle and sweetheart, all the sarcasm you see is just to mask behind. I hope he will be get noticed in future (He deserves more than people show)

    I don't get it, what the fuck do you have with him as a PERSON? You can love him for his work and hes absolutely good at making ABSOLUTELY GREAT MUSIC. I don't give a damn if he is a douche or whatever you are calling him. I think he's brilliant and hot. Pom Pom is my fav album, just can't get enough of it.
