Sina's music has been performed by various ensembles internationally, including 2e2m, Itinéraire, Carin, Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Ensemble Du bout du Monde, XelmYa+, etc.
Sina is considered as composer integrating elements of rich cultural background with modern and contemporary elements to acquire a singularity of a unique perspective.
The selected elements come from various musical cultures, historical epochs, and geographical places. Each piece for him has a very profound relationship with culture.
Hence the source of inspiration seeded in the cultural references and images coming from far away, or in objects and symbols belonging to somewhere else.
The morphological development of the sound gestures, the evolution of the timbre and spatial interaction of the different sound layers have a crucial place in his musical composition.
