Sebastián Escofet

Sebastian Escofet was born in La Plata, Argentina in 1968. At the age of 5, after long listening sessions in his grandfather Luciano's study, he knew music was his calling. At the age of 12 he decided to buy his first electric guitar, inspired by a poster of Pappo that decorated a schoolmate's bedroom. Poor grades forced him to be a self-taught composer up until 18, when he managed to start studying with certain formality & uncertain success. Along the path of musical learning & experimentation he has collaborated with artists like Chango Spasiuk, Gustavo Cerati, Los Estelares, Fabiana Cantilo, Ulises Butron, Jorge Drexler, Los 7 Delfines, Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet, Ezequiel Borra & Mussa Phelps, to name a few. Restlessness & curiosity have led him to explore complementary musical languages such as composition for cinema, theatre, TV, commercials & experimental performances, to embrace the world of song, to surrender himself to rock, to dive into the seas of ambient abstraction & to fly over neo classic-contemporary fields. He composed the soundtrack for over 15 movies which participated in the most important film festivals in the world.
