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, 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.

A Modern Atlantis Down Under A Wave Of Greed (AMADUAWOG) aims at denouncing that Western greed is causing its loss and that this modern Atlantis is sinking more and more under the flood of inequalities which gradually overwhelm it.
Musically speaking the album is forceful and rhythmic, varied, detailed and wide-ranging work at times twisting into unexpected turns in which atmosphere and dramaturgy lead the ear into a wonderland where nothing is as it would seem.
