She was detected very young, while he was listening to the music heard on television. « Around four years old, I played the credits of Dragon Ball Z and especially the music of The Godfather on the little red toy piano with twelve keys that my parents had given me, » he recalls. In his family, however, no one was a musician.
A fan of Chopin
At the conservatory of music, Sofiane enjoyed Chopin, his favorite musician, as well as Ravel and Debussy. But he also admired the jazzmen Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, as well as Thelonious Monk, whose style and rebellious personality continue to fascinate him, and could not escape rap, that of 113 or NTM, towards which his generation naturally pushed him. . In his compositions, we clearly hear echoes of his models Chopin, Ravel and Debussy, but Sofiane Pamart, who often evokes the purity of childhood, above all cultivates simplicity – an apparent simplicity that does not exclude hard work. It also has a modernity, flexibility and fluidity in the game that make it irresistible and eminently accessible.
