Pierre Martin

Drums

Age: 24 years old

Country: France

Pierre Martin grows up between France and Hungary, cradles of his parent’s culture, both musicians and music lovers. He starts playing music at a very young age and discovers jazz and improvised music at the age of 15. These particular music styles took a great place in his drummer’s daily life in Lille (FR) and then at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

His art also leads him to Budapest and Paris where he develops his practices of music and jazz. He discovered theatre at the age of 20 when the monodrama Une Vie Sur Mesure (A Tailor-Made
Life) propelled him on stage for more than a hundred shows in Belgium and France. His collaborations with the current theater scene have deeply marked him and influence his vision of the
stage as a living and mobile creative space, both as an actor and as a musician.

Living in Paris, his current projects lead him to modern theater, improvised music, composition, and the types of music related to jazz.
