Zhivago is an American Electro-Pop musician in Milwaukee, WI.

Born in Algiers, to French and American parents, Zhivago spent portions of his upbringing in the deserts of the American Southwest, cultivating his musical tastes through the “Technomad” scene of nomadic desert party-goers. He spent his formidable years studying Systems Theory and Self Regulating Systems, and began applying concepts of self-correction-through-feedback to his musical compositions, attempting to create a piece of work that would perfect itself over time through repetition.

His work was cut short, however, after flying to attend the funeral of his best friend he was injured in an emergency water-landing of a single engine Cessna aircraft. He suffered trauma to both his neck and back, and broke his wrist in several places. Bedridden and unable to play guitar or piano for several months, Zhivago searched for different avenues to express his grief, and began to read Soviet literature from authors such as Maxim Gorky, Solzhenitsyn, and Pasternak. He found in them a refreshing accurate view of the temperament of the human heart and condition. Zhivago means, 'the living.'

Influences: Leonard Cohen, m83, Air, Timbaland, Bjork, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beck, Big Boi, Interpol, Mark Knopfler.
