Biography of Alain Roche

ALAIN ROCHE – MARCH 13, 1973
COMPOSER / PIANIST
LA CHAUX-DE-FONDS / SWITZERLAND



A painter of musical atmospheres and definitively a daydreamer, Alain Roche writes music just as he thinks, driven by the sole ambition of speaking about what he loves.
Many years of experience in the field of theater and modern dance make him a subtle expert in translating moods into music. In charge of the screenplay of his own music, he reveals himself through ostinati of an hypnotic beauty, walking a thin line between lyrism and cataclysm.
