Producer, Engineer, Partner and Dad. I’m Alex Caminiti. I grew up in Homer, NY in the 80s and 90s, knew everyone in my class, biked around my town all summer, constantly listened to and played music and had an overall great childhood. I bought my Strat in 1997, my first — and one of the first “prosumer” computer/interface digital recording systems — in 2000 and have spent the years since making music, engineering, producing, mixing and filming. 

I named my recording studio “Studio Zoot” after Zoot, the saxophonist in Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem (aka The Muppet Band), the leader and namesake of which was based on Dr. John. Throughout my life I have been fascinated with and inspired by America’s rich creative/musical/artistic culture throughout the past century. Theodore “Dr. Seuss” Geisell, Jim Henson and Shel Silverstein, in my opinion, are three of the most influential humans of my generation due to how they taught children with humor, sarcasm and “over kids heads” adult themes whilst making their art/literature/audio/video engaging and accessible to children and adults alike.

As a kid in the 90s, I thought MTV was the straight up raddest thing ever. Alternative Rock videos, far out animations/claymation and the constant flow of creativity. My mind was blown and it set me on my path of musical and artistic exploration.
