Kizanis on SoundBetter

I have 20 years of classical piano experience which I combine with 10 years of mixing/music tech to create exceptional and emotional tracks. I've released music with Netflix, Capitol Records, Kobalt under artist Black Match, and have worked with so many independent films and artists. If you're missing an edge to your track, let me help you!

Music is meant to be an experience. Tracks end up sounding stale or miss their opportunities to move the listener because the right approach was not taken. The goal for me, always, is to communicate mood and emotion in a way that creates the desired atmosphere. I do this by utilizing dynamics, tone and moving performance.

My 20 years of classical piano training has included extensive performance, the highest levels of music theory, and deep looks into what make classic pieces so memorable and emotional. Through this study, I attempt to translate that knowledge into modern pieces of music that hold just as much if not more relevant weight. The last 10 years I have worked extensively, creating orchestration and string parts that accompany the emotion of the piano. With this has come expert knowledge of recording, mixing, and knowledge of how to attain the most authentic sounds out there. In my opinion, most piano and string sounds become overdone and sound completely fake to the standard ear, unless a lot of care is given.

I have released music with Capitol Records, Netflix, Kobalt Music, and others under the artist Black Match. Music from this project has garnered millions of streams and has been in over featured in over 50 publications (EarMilk, LadyGunn, etc.) Apart from Black Match, I have worked with tons of TV and Film directors to create their desired mood.

    I have used Kizanis' piano skills for several songs now. He is an excellent player, very friendly and communicates well. When ordering tracks online, there is a risk of getting bleak generic performances, where the seller just plays a correct version without any involvement. But Kizanis always plays expressively and improves on the written music in many ways. He knows how to make the music come alive.
