Lionel "Lonny" Ziblat
Concert & film Composer
From the film industry
"The music on [Een Goede Moslima] is the best soundtrack I ever heard in a documentary."
Jelle Peter de Ruiter (The Netherlands), Documentaries editorial chief - 2Doc op NPO2 / KRO-NCRV
"Lionel was fantastic to work with on the film he scored for me a few years ago. He got what I was going for right away and there wasn't many changes to his first pass so that's always a great find in a composer. I still think of that score as one of my favorites and still looking for a project for us to collaborate on in the future. Great guy and great work!"
Randy Kent (U.S.A), Film director
"I have had the pleasure of working with Lonny in the past, and since then I've been following his fascinating musical career. He is an incredibly talented composer, guitarist, singer and band leader. I know very few musicians who can so effortlessly move between classical concert music to rock, pop and jazz. His orchestral music is as brilliant as his rhythm section grooves or his guitar riffs. And throughout his music, there's always a whimsical, witty quality that's totally unique and always surprising".
Eran Dinur (Winner of Prime Time Emmy Award), Composer, Visual effects supervisor at Brainstorm Digital
Working with Lonny on the score of my studentfilm The Maiden & The Gatekeeper was a wonderful experience. With Lonny, delivering something unique - somethings that will shine a new light on the visuals - and keeping the intent of the director in the back of his mind are two sides of the same coin. He truly cares for your film which doesnt't make him shy away from artistic arguments. This means he's willing to go the extra mile to give your film exactly what it means. In short, Lonny is collaborator and also a true storyteller."
Vincent van den Ouden, Film maker
"I approached Lonny requesting him to write music for the Underground Music Library. The music Lonny creates has a strong flavor and an imprint of his character, but he is also capable of designing commercial cues specifically for our market. His skills as an accomplished guitarist as well as an accomplished composer & orchestrator are a great asset. His cues are very popular, and with only a dozen of his pieces in our database, we regularly license countless of his pieces worldwide each year.Our collaboration is still going on and we are looking forward to many productive years together".
Amotz Plessner / The Underground Music Library, composer (Digimon, The Addams Family feature film)
"Lionel worked as composer for our documentary Adapters. He is a very talented, good educated and highly professional composer. We are very happy to have him in our team. He managed to work with a difficult deadline situation and still provide beautiful music".
Oksana Maksimchuk, Film Producer / Director (Omaks Productions, Zeppers)
"I've known Lionel for almost 20 years and have had the privilege of collaborating with him (as a trombone player) on a couple of projects. I can honestly say he is one of the most versatile, creative, original and professional musicians I've had the pleasure of working with. His music never ceases to surprise and delight me".
Erez Volk, Software Engineer, Linguist, Translator & Musician
From concert music instances
"It is always a pleasure to work with Lionel and he has provided us with some surprising choral arrangements. We're looking forward to working with him again".
