Daniel Zongrone is a percussionist and keyboardist currently based in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He is best known for his work in the electronic music group [a=Earthstar] in the late 70s and early 80s. Zongrone grew up in Utica, New York, where he met [a=Dennis Rea] and [a=Norm Peach] during the early '70s. In 1977 all three musicians joined together with [a=Craig Wuest] and other area musicians to form Earthstar, with Zongrone serving as percussionist. They were signed by Nashville-based Moontower records which released their debut album, Salterbarty Tales the following year. Earthstar was then encouraged by electronic music artist, composer, and producer [a=Klaus Schulze] to relocate to Germany where they were signed by [l=Sky Records]. Zongrone made the move in time to join the recording sessions for the band's third album, Atomkraft? Nein, Danke! (1981), playing piano and vibraphone. After Earthstar dissolved Zongrone again collaborated with Dennis Rea, composing music for an exhibition of painter and former Earthstar violinist [a=Daryl Trivieri]'s work at the Semaphore East Gallery in New York City in 1985. The following year Zongrone received a "Meet the Composer" grant for NYC dance composition. He also recorded his solo album Absolute Zero in 1987. After a 10 year hiatus from professional music during which Zongrone started a family he composed the soundtrack to the independent film "The Glasshead". Currently Zongrone plays drums and vibraphone in the South Carolina based blues and jazz trio Tipping Point with guitarist Terry Jones and bassist Andy Nagel.
