Zimbalon Publishing is an ASCAP affiliated music publisher. Located in Champaign, Illinois, Zimbalon Publishing is surrounded by a different sort of musical culture than that found in Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Seattle, Atlanta, and other music centers. Champaign, Illinois is surrounded by corn and soybean fields, yet is dominated by the University of Illinois. This combination of rural agriculture combined with the academic university provides a unique diversity and strength for music composers and performers.
Champaign is home to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the home of NCSA Mosaic (that later became Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator), Symbolic Sound Corporation (Home of the Kyma / Capybara system), Wolfram Research (Mathematica) and numerous other high tech centers and firms. Consequently, there is no shortage of intellect and drive among the town musicians. Champaign provides numerous outlets for performers ranging from serious music (The University of Illinois Music Department and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts) to all genres of pop, spiritual, and alternative music.
Zimbalon Publishing works with a select group of writers to help them find suitable outlets for their creative endeavors.
Zimbalon Publishing is also affiliated with Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). CCLI aids churches in responsibly using copyrighted material, and provides a mechanism for songwriters to be paid for church uses.
