    Taken from the Alrealon Musique PICT. DISC VINYL release, 'Philippe Petit - Needles in Pain' (ALRN036)

    NEEDLES IN PAIN is a "symphony for turntables" executed live using 3 turntables + 1 extra tonearm built for Philippe and allowing to catch 2 different sounds from the same "prepaired" vinyl.

    It was recorded in 2009 @ FIME festival. For the first time Philippe is releasing a record whose music comes only from his turntablism, and that hopefully will transmit how he enjoys performing and entertaining his audience.

    Indeed the basis for "Needles In Pain" comes from unique vinyl units which Philippe Petit uses during his musical sets. Filled with field recordings, textures which have mutated with each playing, creating an organic maturation in sound that time slowly developped... Textures gradually changed with each playing taking advantage of the patina of age, elaborating an alteration in the sound. An echo of the past to which Petit adds more and more vinyls' warm cracklings...

    Includes unlimited streaming of Needles In Pain via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

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...
