Interested in soundtracks Philippe Petit likes to be introduced as a “Musical-Travel-Agent”. Since the early 2000s Philippe has been performing the world, playing festivals all over Europe, Russia, Poland, Canada, USA, Mexico, Australia & Asia, and releasing on several international labels such as Opa-Loka, Aagoo, Southern UK, Monotype, Bölt, Alrealon Musique, Beta Lactam Ring, Sub Rosa, HomeNormal, Important, HelloSquare, Public Eyesore, Utech, or Staubgold.
Philippe studies Composition & Electroacoustic music at the CNRR Conservatory of Marseille where he is specialising in multi-channelled diffusion (Acousmatic spatialisation) and Modular Synthesis. He has created the very first platform aiming at promoting the genre: MODULISME.
He was fortunate enough to work with what people call a dream-team of collaborators: joining Lydia Lunch, Murcof, The European Contemporary Orchestra (E.C.O.), Mark Cunningham (MARS), Cindytalk, Audrey Chen, Mia Zabelka, Iancu Dumitrescu's Hyperion Ensemble, Stephen O'Malley or Faust onstage and-or in studio. He has also recorded with Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots), Simon Fisher Turner, Kumo, Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), My Brightest Diamond, Sybarite, Foetus, Pantaleimon, Graham Lewis (Wire), Barry Adamson, Andy Diagram, Scanner, Machinefabriek, Mira Calix, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Justin K. Broadrick, James Johnston (Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds/Faust), ASVA, Jarboe, Jad Fair, Martin Dupont and many more…
Relying on electricity/amplification, vintage synths to produce, manipulate, sculpt his “electronic abstractions" and plastic sound-objects, Philippe is constantly trying his best to explore various genres and make sure that each album differs from the previous one, trying to avoid routine and surprise listeners.
