I'm Jim Zamerski. I was trained classically on the piano from age 5. I can't remember a time I wasn't in love with music. Music is a language of emotion, and I've been practicing it my whole life. As a child, I spent hours bouncing off the walls, humming and singing every melody from The Nutcracker. When I was 14 I began playing guitar and drums. I graduated from Kettering University with a bachelors in mechanical engineering. I've always taken a great interest in science, philosophy, and history, which is what led me to this discovery.
When I sat down for the first time to look into the digits of pi as music, it didn't take me more than two minutes to see that the first 17 digits contain that beautiful phrase. When I figured out the note that brings the phrase to perfect resolution, and played the first section through to the end for the first time, that was the most amazing moment of my life. You know how it feels to finish another person's thought?
I enjoy playing and singing anything from Billy Joel, Elton John, Van Morrison, Aerosmith, and Queen, to Rachmaninoff, Liszt, and Vince Guaraldi. I love putting on impromptu shows.
