Sina is considered as composers integrating elements of rich cultural background with modern and contemporary elements to acquire a singularity of a unique perspective. The selected elements come from various musical cultures, historical epochs and geographical places. Each piece for him has a very profound relationship with culture. Hence the source of inspiration seeded in the cultural references and images coming from far away, or in objects and symbols belonging to somewhere else. The morphological development of the sound gestures and the evolution of the timbre have a crucial place in his musical composition. (Bio : septembre 2017)
