Philippe Petit - Deep-sea Creatures

01. Underwater
02. Photic Ill-uminescence
03. Species That Feed Near The Bottom
04. Hypoxic Breathing
05. Hadal Dive

The term deep sea creature refers to organisms that live below the photic zone of the ocean. These creatures swimming in abyssal or hadal zones must survive in extremely harsh conditions, such as hundreds of bars of pressure, small amounts of oxygen, very little food, no sunlight, and constant, extreme cold. Humans have explored less than 4% of the ocean floor, and dozens of new species of deep sea creatures are discovered with every dive, which may be compared to the feeling I have each time that I sit in front of my modular synthesizers and play…
Which is what I did in order to soundtrack those images of « deep-sea fishes » I had in mind, using the glorious vintage Easel K + System 200 from Buchla and Synthi AKS by EMS. Pure, raw, alive and thought-provoking…

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... Feeling lucky to release 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, Staubgold, etc...

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


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.
Besides he did some recordings with: Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots), Simon Fisher Turner, Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), Foetus, Graham Lewis (Wire), Barry Adamson, Andy Diagram, Scanner, Mira Calix, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Justin K. Broadrick, James Johnston (Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds/Faust), ASVA, Jarboe, Jad Fair 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.
