MASTERCLASS MUSIC IN ANIMATION WITH PABLO PICO
Composer and artist Pablo Pico is the man behind the music for numerous animated shorts and features, including Sirocco et le Royaume des courants d’air, Maman pleut des cordes, L’Extraordinaire Voyage de Marona, Adama and the Chien pourri series. He has received many awards for his work and this has enabled him to collaborate with musicians such as Oxmo Puccino, Isabel Sörling and Arthur H.
