Victor Kiswell

Musicologist

At Le Pigalle, Victor creates soundtracks capturing the spirit of the neighborhood, where he grew up. This classy but iconoclastic mix, ranging from Fréhel and Satie to Django Reinhardt and 1990s hiphop, is drawn from a combination of podcasts and vinyl.

It will be broadcast throughout the hotel, including the bedrooms and toilets, and will take the temperature up a notch in the evenings. Victor has a passion for the area’s history and sociology, and specializes in hunting down sounds for composers and producers. His soundtracks for Le Pigalle are a treasure trove of surprises, a worthy introduction to the man and his natural habitat.
