Pablo Pico

Born in 1983, Pablo Pico studied drums and classical percussion at the Conservatoire before learning to play the saxophone, the clarinette and the piano. In 2007, he attended Patrice Mestral’s music composition course at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, and began his career by composing music for professional shorts, such as Léo Verrier’s Dripped (shortlisted for the Oscars and selected at the Annecy Festival in 2011). He was rewarded at a number of film festivals and received advice and encouragement from composers Ryuichi Sakamoto and Bruno Coulais. In 2015, he composed music for his first feature film, Adama by Simon Rouby, an animated film nominated at the César and selected at the Annecy festival, and collaborated with the rapper Oxmo Puccino.
