TRISTAN VIRGIL TOBIA BLISS

Tristan is an undergraduate composer currently studying at Western Oregon University. He doesn't believe knowing random details about his studies will enlighten his music for you, but here is some other random information he believes will. Tristan loves: Dostoevsky (especially Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment), skinny dipping in the ocean, philosophical discussions about his equal disbelief in predetermination and chance – which opens up a lot of room for existential crises about the nature of the universe, which coincidentally he also loves. In short, Tristan doesn't and does take everything and nothing seriously, but on the forefront is music, and music's ability to express what language just turns into nonsensical contradictions.
