François has an unusual background. Before becoming a techno music producer, he was a promising professional snowboarder as part of the official French team. His life seemed to be dedicated to a professional sporting career until his many injuries put an end to this passion.

After spending some years working on his first project under the name of Egon Carter, he made a fresh start at the end of 2014 and launched Roisner, his new alias, and ‘Chambre Noire’, his own event, at the infamous Anita Berber (Berlin), run by Sammy Dee and Tom Clark. Roisner also did several apparitions as a live-performer at Anita Berber, Club der Visionäre and The Analog Society.
