A message from Troy

Bonjour mes amis,
Juste quelques mots pour vous dire que j'ai commencé à mixer de la musique pour des artistes et des groupes cette année. J'adore chaque minute et j'ai trouvé ma nouvelle passion.
Si vous aimez le "son du groupe Chokebore" ou le "son lo-fi de TvB", nous devrions parler.
Je peux ajouter des instruments, des idées et des mixages qui sonnent bien. Nous pouvons travailler ensemble pour rendre votre musique intéressante, intense et belle.
Si vous avez un projet qui a besoin d'un excellent mixage, n'hésitez pas à me contacter.

New book

Here is a message from Troy about it:

To all my French/English speaking friends, I’m happy to announce that I made a new book for you. It’s called “Caution! Poison Snake! No Entry!”
This book is special because it features the drawings of James Kroll (Bass of Chokebore) and preface + photos by Mathias Malzieu (Singer of Dionysos/Author/Film maker)
It’s a fun and intense book of short stories, flash fiction, and warped lyrics.
The book is in French and English (I’m super happy about this).

“Caution! Poison Snake! No Entry!” will be in the shops in France on April 1st but you can buy it now from Eidola Editions right here.

Caution! Poison snake! No entry!
