BIOGRAPHY

forme.png

Antoine took piano lessons at the Conservatory of Fribourg at the age of nine in the class of Louis-Marc Crausaz. Influenced by all kinds of music, he likes to transcribe on the piano the songs he listens to. As a teenager, he starts a band with friends. Together, they will cover and arrange pop and rock music.

 

At the same time, he is interested in MAO and composes his first instrumental under his pseudonym "Two One". The desire to record artists on his own music leads him, in 2012, to found his own studio.
Through encounters and collaborations, he gains experience by combining beatmaking, composition, recording and mixing. In 2018, he sets up his own label, "Hasard Records", with the artist Lorage. 

 

Graduated with a Bachelor and a Master in Music at the HEMU Vaud, Valais, Fribourg, Antoine links his knowledge and training to his passion in the field of musical and artistic production. He is open to many styles and is involved in all his collaborations. He is currently completing his studies in pedagogy at the Haute Ecole de Pédagogie de Lausanne in order to teach music at the post-compulsory school

 

Current director of the "Chœur des Guelins" since 2017, Antoine is also active in the choral landscape.

He sings and conducts within the Ensemble Noctuor, and, in 2018, he co-founded and took over the direction of the Cake O'Phonie ensemble, composed of singers from the French-speaking part of Switzerland. It's with his arrangements and this vocal ensemble that he participates and wins the show "Chorus" produced by the RTS. Following this victory, this group had the chance to represent Switzerland at the "Eurovision Choir of The Year" in Gothenburg in August 2019.
