Releasing compositions for solo piano on an almost monthly basis for the past few years, in May of 2020 Tristan also began an ambient project under the moniker of Purple Decades. With a tireless work ethic and inextinguishable artistic curiosity, you can expect much more new music from Tristan in the near future.
