    The sound, the song, the words, and the mounting narrative spool of the efforts of PHILIPPE PETIT and OXBOW founder and frontman EUGENE S. ROBINSON.
    THE CRYING OF LOT 69, drawing on equal parts Pynchon and the dog eating dog laws of senseless jungle indifference, is the sound of compassion denied. Featuring tales from a killing and forming the first in a trilogy that will see the star cast of characters alternately expanding and contracting, THE CRYING OF LOT 69 pulls up a blanket, of concrete, and cozies you into the comfort of a world where the mildest intentions have the wildest effects.

    Eugene S. Robinson: vocals + words

    Philippe Petit: processed acoustics/field recordings + electronics + turntables + inflatable balloons + prepaired guitar


    GUESTS:

    Rhys Chatham : trumpet
    In the late 60s being interested in Serialism and music of long duration Rhys Chatham started working with Morton Subotnick, Tony Conrad and La Monte Young.
    Chatham became an active figure on the late-night rock scene in New York City. making use of multiple electric guitars in just intonation to merge the extended-time music of the sixties and seventies with the pounding, throbbing rhythms of rock. Composing symphonies for hundreds of guitars he pushed further the aesthetic concerns of post-minimalism, and inspirated the works of Glenn Branca, Sonic Youth and countless Noisy bands.
    By 1982, Chatham was going deaf from playing too much loud music. He decided to make a series of fully notated pieces for the slightly quieter brass family of instruments. In the early nineties, Chatham began to focus his energy on playing trumpet and developing a personal "voice" on the instrument.

    Helena Espvall : cello
    One might have heard of Swedish cellist Helena Espvall from her work with the recent crop of neo-psych folk artists like Espers, Fursaxa, and Samara Lubelski, as well as being a member of Vashti Bunyan's touring band. She has also released some solo works thru Museum Fire and Pax recordings.

    Hervé Vincenti : guitar - synths
    Hervé Vincenti enjoys developing graceful notes and varied melodies. He is a member of Strings Of Consciousness and had played with Luc Ferrari.

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...
