David AMAR

Modern & Jazz Singing Teacher

David Amar is a singer and multi-instrumentalist. In 2005, he founded "Sashird Lao", a vocal and instrumental trio. A finalist in the 2006 La Défense national jazz competition and winner of the 2007 "Jazz à Juan Révélations" award, the trio has recorded 3 albums and performed in many countries.

A growing passion for the voice led him to study opera singing at the Académie de Musique de Monaco, then to train at the Roy Hart International Artistic Center and with the Estill method. David Amar approaches the voice as an instrument, and his vocal improvisations combine scat, beatbox, diphonic singing and saturated vocals. In his performances, he also uses a looper and electronic effects to distort, amplify or modulate his voice, which is his trademark.

At the same time, in 2010 he discovered Soundpainting, a sign language for composing in real time, with Walter Thompson and François Jeanneau. Increasingly attracted to multidisciplinarity, he set up the 1st soundpainting collective in Nice, bringing together musicians, actors and dancers. It was on this occasion that he switched to an eminently corporeal approach in his artistic process.
On a purely musical side, since 2016 he has been pursuing research with his trio Inwardness into the development of "100% spontaneous composition" concerts, in triangulation with a specific audience and venue.

David Amar regularly works with contemporary theater, circus and dance companies, keen to combine creation, stage performance and real-time composition. With "Humanophones", he also explores the demands of a repertoire combining a cappella singing and body percussion.

In 2019, he joins Camille, a leading figure in new French chanson, for the creation of her new show.
