Zubin has collaborated with many of the world’s leading composers and premiered more than 130 works. Recent collaborations include those with Alexander Schubert on his internet-based WIKI-PIANO.NET, which has been performed in 23 cities, with Nicole Lizée on her Scorsese Etudes, the latest in her auteur focused Criterion Collection creating studies out of the sonic and visual materials of classic films, with Shiva Feshareki on an extended work combining the piano with turntables, ambisonic electronics and interactive lighting, and with Philip Venables on an upcoming concert-length work using pianos, keyboards, electronics and live video, exploring the life of artist David Wojnarowicz and his experience of the AIDS crisis in 1980s New York.

After graduating from the University of Sydney and the Royal Academy of Music, Zubin was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Nice and IRCAM (Paris) and a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at Royal Holloway, University of London, where he is now Lecturer in Musical Performance and Digital Arts.
