Jason Zhang

Programmer - Composer - Pianist


Hi! I'm Jason Zhang. I'm currently a student at the University of Michigan studying Composition and Computer Science. I'm interested in the intersections of music and technology, using Web3 and Machine Learning to bring more people closer to music.
As a composer I try to connect with people through my music. I draw inspiration from nature, the mudane experiences of life, as well as the harmonic language of video games and jazz. I also play keyboard in the Symphony Band.
In my free time I like to read, play with my dogs, and hike. One book that I read recently and have to recommend is the "Plant Messiah" by Carlos Magadelena.
