MASHK was born in France and started learning the piano with an age of 5. At the age of 18, he gradually abandoned the piano for the saxophone, and becomes a public professor of music theory and saxophone in Paris. 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. 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. The characteristics of Mashk’s music are within the dimensions of sound, taking the listener on a journey which describe feelings, dreams and desires. With each note he is trying to reach hearts.
