Biography

Christophe Trottet was born in La Ciotat in the south of France, he’s living between France and California. He graduated from the Nancy M.A.I. (International Music Academy) and teaches guitar to a large number of students, using his own specially adapted method of teaching through Skype.

His aim is to spread to others his passion for music and composition.

He first discovered Brazilian music in 2000, when he accompanied the singer Maria Ninguem, for whom he composed several songs, and then recorded her first album with her.

During this period, he also played in a quintet with Pierre-Yves Guemy on his jazz album Tritonium Diabolus.

In November 2002, he met Marie So, and composed her first album “Chaque Jour” (Nocturne 2006, Warner) recording in Brazil with Joao Bosco. You can listen three of Christophe’s composition on the Ladies’ Jazz Compilation album (Warner), where they figure amongst a number of big names including Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Stacey Kent, Liz Wright… He released Marie So’s second album in 2012 “Dans le coeur des gens”. He is also working on the music for Jerk House Connection (Defected), and composing music for TV. His first album with Brazilian Urban Project (B.u.P) is released in 2013. He produced and composed City Of Lights from Marie So, released in May 2015, then a single in 2018.

He wrote Home Studio and a guitar method Guitare Kiné, both available on iBook store.

 

Depuis mes premiers accords à la guitare j’ai toujours composé. Aujourd’hui mes compos sont dans 2 styles différents : du Jazz et de la Bossa Nova, à l’électro.

Bref, j’apprécie autant la composition riche en harmonie du Jazz que la recherche sonore que l’on peut trouvé dans l’électro.
Certaines de mes compositions sont signés chez Warner Jazz et apparaissent sur des compilations aux côtés de Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Bebel Gilberto…d’autres chez Defected et autres Labels.
Sur scène je suis aux côté de Marie So depuis des années avec des concerts en France, Italie, Pologne, Crête, Japon, Brésil, USA…

L’enregistrement en studio et la M.A.O (Musique Assistée par Ordinateur) font partie de ma vie de musicien.
J’ai participé à l’enregistrement en tant que guitariste, mais aussi en tant qu’ingénieur du son de plusieurs albums, dont ceux de Marie So, Jerk House Connection, Brazilian Urban Project, et d’autres…certains aux côtés de Joao Bosco et les musiciens de Sting et Gilberto Gil.
Je suis aussi l’auteur d’une méthode sur la M.A.O, Home Studio disponible sur l’iBook Store et d’une méthode de guitare Guitare Kiné.
