There’s no doubt that German producer, DJ, and classically trained musician Zedd is incredibly talented. His productions continually top the charts. And each track he releases never ceases to amaze his fans and the music industry. His latest track, “One Strange Rock,” is an orchestral masterpiece with his signature electronic transitions sprinkled throughout. One Strange Rock is in collaboration with National Geographic for a Nat Geo show of the same name.
One Strange Rock was directed by the award-winning Darren Aronofsky. The series showcases the cunning landscapes, life, and beauty that our planet contains. It’s hosted by Will Smith, and experienced astronauts share their experiences and visions of the planet from a bird’s eye view.
This composition is extraordinarily involved and is Zedd’s most involved piece he’s done. National Geographic’s remarkable cinematography complement the production superbly. In fact, the visuals of our beautiful planet were a huge inspiration for this composition.
“Shooting the video for ‘One Strange Rock’ was such an insane experience,” Zedd states. “The National Geographic team had projected videos onto the cave walls that made me feel like I was in another world. I also want to shout out my buddy Brian Tyler for helping me with the orchestration on this song.”
Furthermore, Zedd premiered his music video for “The Middle” with Maren Morris and Grey at the Grammys earlier this year.
Anton Zaslavski, better known by his stage name Zedd, is a Russion-German DJ, musician, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and record producer. His music is generally focused on electro house, but he’s recently taken a dive into pop music. His most recent collaborations with Alessia Cara (“Stay“), Foxes (“Clarity“), and Ariana Grande (“Break Free“) achieved immense support from around the world and smashed the Billboard Hot 100 charts. At the 56th Grammy Awards, Zedd won Best Dance Recording for his track “Clarity.”
