Bio

Krÿstan, singer-writer-composer, is from the Montreal region. Krÿstan’s compositions can be distinguished by an original approach combining reason and passion. Marked by his early influences — British Rock and the Goth movement of the 1980’s —, Krÿstan’s compositions were initially based on traditional rock orchestration with layers of sound effects and moody tracks. He later integrated classical and baroque elements, went deeper into the art of arrangement and tweaked an approach where acoustic, classical and electric guitars are superimposed within complex and polished textures. A multi-instrumentalist, he thus developed creation techniques and reinvented a sound that became his own.

Meticulous and leaving nothing to chance, Krÿstan is involved in most aspects of production. Working from his own recording studio, he does not hesitate to surround himself with celebrated musicians and sound engineers to put the finishing touches to his albums. This is how he launched iNqualia in 2010, under the CDT Musik label, an alternative pop/rock album, produced with the contribution of bass player Mario Légaré, drummer Tony Albino and masters of the console Glen Robinson (Ringo Starr, Keith Richards, etc.) and Arnie Acosta (U2, Frank Zappa, among others). As for Krÿstan’s texts, they incite introspection, striking an existentialist chord that is steeped in a sweet melancholy. iNqualia is the work of an introspective artist, characterized by its dreamlike instrumental passages.

Krÿstan is a prolific composer who has written over a hundred titles to date, some of which have already aired on several radio stations in Quebec.
