about

I am usually not one fond of spoken word performances, as I feel too often they come across not only as pretentious, but also tend to overshadow any musical accompaniment they might have. On Empires Should Burn, they feel less like that traditional style, but more like a collection of ghost stories with sonic accompaniment. The fact that both the words and music are captivating is no easy task, and I can’t think of any time it worked so well other than Velvet Underground's "The Gift" or Wire's "The Other Window."

“And Empires Will Burn” is the sound of a world burning, but at an excruciatingly slow pace. None of us can feel the temperature escalating, and we won’t until it’s too late.

"To call Empires Should Burn unsettling is an understatement - this album is made from twisted stomachs, standing neck hairs, and eyes gingerly peering over shoulders. Immerse yourself if you dare."

about

Philippe Petit: a musical travel-agent Yahatahigashi Ward, Japan

Interested in soundtracks even if I create original music I'd rather be introduced as a "musical travel agent" than a composer.

Since 2000 I have been playing all over the world...
Feeling lucky to release on several international labels such as Aagoo, Southern UK, Monotype, Alrealon Musique, Beta Lactam Ring, Sub Rosa, HomeNormal, Important, HelloSquare, Public Eyesore, Utech, Staubgold, etc...
