Cotoman holds a DESS in film music at Montreal’s UQAM, an associate’s degree in psychology from the University Paris VIII in France and a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Iasi, Romania.
Her musical style could be labeled as neo-tonal or modern romantic and it combines influences inherited from Eastern European folklore and her classical music education, with minimalism, jazz and electro-acoustic explorations. The key word to her musical universe is melody, inherited from her passion for opera.
