About

About - Mashk

Mashk has always been in contact with the world of music. Born in France, he started learning the piano at 5 thanks to his parents. This is the thunderbolt his way has found. At the age of 18, he gradually abandoned the piano for the saxophone, and on the advice of one of his teachers and friend who pushes him this way, he becomes a professor of music theory and saxophone. He is still teaching in conservatories, including one where he was a pupil - simple logic return things. By education and training, he explores and walks in totally different styles ranging from classical to jazz, hip hop and electronic music, which is for him an extension of contemporary classic music. He has many musical influences: Bach, Coltrane and he can’t dissociate through Steve Reich or Arvo Part for the main. One will find many styles and a lot of sensitivity in his music and his universe. For him music is synonymous with travel, reflection, a sort of mysticism and must express emotions. He also tries to transcribe his passion for literature and philosophy in his musical universe. Music must try to touch people's hearts and is all about sharing. Being curious, he likes making musical experiences and exploring the sonic material. Always trying to improve and develop his music, he favors harmony, rhythm (rhythm work on equivalences) and is still in search of a certain aesthetic beauty and purity.

In 2013, under the guidance of one of his friends he sends some of his tracks to different labels and his work is rewarded with a positive answer from Parquet Recordings. His meeting with Solee will be decisive. Indeed, his music is part of Solee’s compilations re: cognition 5 & 6 with his tracks Spheris and Last Breath. This is for him the beginning of a new musical adventure and chapter.
