Zygmund de Somogyi was raised in a suburb of south-west London to a Filipino family. He first gained a passion for music through learning the piano as a child, and exposure in his teenage years to the UK punk, alternative and hardcore scenes through bands such as Gallows, Enter Shikari and Architects. After graduating secondary school, he moved to Leeds at the age of 18 where he started composing for solo piano, as well as becoming a founding member of skate punk trio High Visions.
Zygmund de Somogyi moved back to London in 2017, where he wrote and recorded two full-length albums, scored a number of short films, and toured the UK with High Visions. In 2019, he channeled his love for heavy metal and post-rock soundscapes, recording his third solo album Always Believe with rock producer Will Cook (Classically Handsome Brutes).
Zygmund de Somogyi is currently based between Birmingham and Rheinland-Pfalz, and pursuing a Masters degree in Composition at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, studying with Ed Bennett, Howard Skempton and Joe Cutler.
