PHILIPPE PETIT (Live)
TWIST OF FATE
Philippe Petit has been DJing in various clubs and radio stations since 1983. According to him a DJ is not only an instrument for dancing but as a living musical library he should also take his audience to a new cultural trip / discovery. Philippe wants to entertain listeners and to open new "doors of perception", to create a virtual world to enable them to forget about their own existence for a short while. Philippe tries to tell us a story, with a beginning and an end.
The content of the mix is obviously of critical importance, but the DJ's technique should never overflow its creative aspect (inspiration); however, it must bring the live touch to the fluid sequence music to give birth in the end, to a unique, playful and truly lively performance.
DJfirstname.lastname@example.org is specialised in mixing electronica, ambientism, avant-hip-hop, dubby playful rythmic "electroclashics" in a plunderphonic way, essential part of different songs all mixed together to keep the rythmn alive. Using MK II allowing to manipulate/carress sounds + a laptop to add sci-fi, prepaired guitar chords, various clicks & electro-acoustic or field recordings in the background forming a tapestry of sound, running up to 6 different sources altogether to create a dense sound assemblage. It's a great depth that he creates.
