Évariste is one of the rare specimens of artist-cum-scientists, his song writing, joyful and full of energy, shrouds a tragedy, his father was killed at Auschwitz during WWII. In the early '60s he obtained his doctorate in theoretical physics (3rd cycle) at the University of Lyon (whilst also taking his frst steps in song writing), which led to further studies and a position as assistant professor in physics at
Princeton, USA 1966-67.
Back in France, he started writing songs under the pseudonym Évariste (a reference to the French mathematician Évariste Galois, 1811-32) and he got a recording deal with Disc'Az where he released a string of singles and EPs, among which "Connais-tu l'animal qui inventa le calcul integral"? became a novelty hit in 1966, with music written by Michel Colombier (later of Hollywood fame). In 1968-1970, he released 3 self-produced singles and an EP, all with covers by the great Tunisian- French cartoonist Georges Wolinski, who was murdered outside the ofces of Charlie Hebdo in 2015.
