Sam Sine, born and raised in Paris, France is a creative and inventive musical artist with fresh concepts and innovative ideas. Sam has a passion for his craft that is evident in every aspect of his work.
His vast knowledge of music and appreciation for all styles give him the foundation to create unique sounds for any type of project. Whether scoring a film or producing an album, Sam brings dedication and attention to detail to each of his compositions and arrangements, that he then mixes and masters to achieve the highest quality of sound.
Sam’s love of music began at an early age. As a young child, he improvised a drum set, using pots, pans, and anything else he could find around the house, to create percussive sounds. He thus began developing his natural ability for rhythm and by the time he started his first drum lesson at the age of 18, his teacher was astonished at his sense of timing, saying that his skill was at an advanced level, only achieved after one or two years of study.
While drumming was his first love, Sam expanded his knowledge of other instruments, before discovering a passion for composing original material.
"Many people can create a melody, but having the basic skill of rhythm and timing is a fundamental and crucial step in the composition process. It is the backbone and heartbeat of each composition. A proper understanding of rhythm is important to convey the correct mood, and emotion in every song, or movie scene. Like life itself, everything moves and evolves to its own rhythm."
Sam, who now lives in Los Angeles, composing for film and television but also working on albums for singers, has chosen “Sine” as his artist name to honor his love of music and Nature. The sine sound is a pure and simple tone in music that graphically reflects the visual image of a gentle, undulating wave of an ocean; A place of inspiration for him.
