Johan Troch is a composer songwriter, who started in 1983 with a band called Last Journey.
Strongly influenced by the music and spirit of Joy Division and Cocteau Twins, that also influenced a lot of bands in Europe during the “Cold Wave” scene in the early eighties.
In ’86 the band split up, and after two years, he began writing songs again to go further on his own.
At that time, he discovered other musical treasures like the Pat Metheny Group, who brought him also into the jazz-fusion world. Since ’84 he was also very charmed by Brilliant Trees from David Sylvian.
That and his following albums, introduced him also to great musicians like former Japan members: Steve Jansen, Richard Barbieri and Mick Karn.
But also Jon Hassell, Holger Czukay, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kenny Wheeler, Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, David Thorn and Mark Isham.
Years later, also film composers like: Thomas Newman, Cliff Martinez, Gustavo Santaolalla,
Michael Giacchino and many others influenced his work throughout the past years.
His work contains a personal voyage of these inputs thlat recalls also his deepest feelings and emotions into music. That’s why his music is something very personal from deep inside.
Troch also compare himself with painters. Normally he doesn’t replay songs or tracks of himself.
After he composed and recorded them, the work is done.
Just like a painter who doesn’t paint the same painting a second time. (mostly not)
He is aware of the fact, that this is unusual.
But the only thing he wants to do is…..creating music, every time again something new.
But this doesn’t mean, that he don’t want to share his music to the world out there.
The internet is a great way for him to share his work with you all.
