Tristan is from the South-East of France, where the Mistral blows from the North and the sea winds blow from the south through a valley surrounded by the sheer and towering rocks of the Vercors on one side, and the green mountains of the Massif Central rising up on the other.
His family is from Alsace, which sometimes belonged to Germany and sometimes to France, and has it’s own language.
He left for seven years, first of all stopping in Reims and then packed up his bags in two trunks to leave for Canada. He returned to his home region in 2007.
A highly experienced sound and lighting engineer, Tristan started with the company in 2009 and has also taken to the stage in our shows Diaspora, Jojo & Billie’s Tour de France and our circus show Mâ.
Tristan originally trained as a sound engineer, working for 7 years for Radio France Bleu, Champagne, before moving to Canada where he worked for music festivals.
Passionate about bringing music and artistic events to the community he moved back to France where he programmed for three rural venues and a yearly festival with the association Coeff. 7.
He was responsible for programming, marketing, artist relations and graphic design and continues to graphic design from time to time for other venues and companies.
He worked as the sound engineer and tour manager for the children’s concert, ‘Bas Les Pattes’, which has toured all over France, including the festival Les Francofolies and many prominent children’s festivals.
