Originally under the name Asterisk, The Pillars Of Creation is a solo lo-fi electronic project formed in Chicago Illinois, USA in 2008 by Marc “Charlie Brown” Zielinski of DJ Downtown Charlie Brown fame. His music is said to be a synth trip to a beach in space. Space being one of his biggest inspirations.

The Pillars Of Creation is the name giving to the famous 1995 Hubble Space Telescope photo of the Eagle Nebula (M16). Being inspired by space itself, Marc set out to make this iconic name the forefront to his electronic musical career.

Born in 1986 in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, this up & coming musician was surrounded at an early age by music. While most fathers of this time were into your standard radio hits, his looked onto a more underground and innovative scene. His dad being a part-time DJ at the time had all your standard music on hand but had a hobby of playing the popular synth keyboards of the 1970-80’s. Marc grew up not on radio hits but on 1970’s progressive rock greats like Yes, E.L.P, and Genesis. Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson flooded through the air on a daily basis. Not only was the music played frequently but his fathers keyboard collection also left an impact on Marc. A Roland Juno 60 & 106… Two classic 80’s keyboards left Marc to experiment, learn, and play what one day he would come to find he loves to do.
