Interview

TouellSkouarn was founded in 2010 in Plougastel-Daoulas, near Brest. All modules and stompboxes are named in Breton language (brezhoneg) and are made by hand using discrete high-quality components aimed to distort and scream louder than the ocean waves washing the cliffs on the coast of Brittany, France.

After Alex4 had taken part at SynthFest France, a cozy and engaged meet up all around electronic music spiced with workshops, demonstrations and concerts in the culturally rich city of Nantes back in 2019, Gael Loisson of TouellSkouarn invited one of their product specialists to visit him in his house in Brittany. This was a good opportunity for Tom to get to know Gael better and talk about all sorts of music related stuff. Getting in touch personally is still the best when it comes to build solid relations. Finally Gael agreed to record a little interview where he talks about his musical background and his way of working.
