Philippe Petit started MODULISME in the Summer of 2019, as a logical continuation of his prestigious label BiP_HOp which from 2000 to 2010 advocated left field Electronica, and sees this new stage as the very first platform dedicated to the promotion of modular synthesis, offering an informative approach, interviews, resources on the subject… And above all hours of original music.
Modulisme acts as a label offering exclusive sessions of one hour in order to highlight each of the composers.
It is also a radio show broadcast via Resonance FM in London; CAMP Radio in the rest of England; Panik (Brussels) + Jet FM (Nantes) + Ego des Garrigues (Montpellier) and Campus Grenoble + Modular-Station. For us, he assembled-summarized a kind of inventory since by going to the platform you will find more than 40 hours. new music …
Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner, has been making sounds and playing with technology since he was 11 years old. Not being interested in the systematic pattern of recording, releasing product and touring to support that much of his activity has been outside of standard music routines, and more aligned with an art practice. over the years he designed permanent sound works in the Raymond Poincaré hospital in Garches, France as part of the bereavement suite (Channel of Flight), the Science Museum London and in Vex house, the London residential house in collaboration with Chance de Silva architects. He scored The Big Dance in Trafalgar Square for 1000 dancers and the re-opening of the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, in the company of Queen Beatrix, and in 2016 scored the world’s first ever Virtual Reality ballet, Nightfall, with Dutch National Ballet.
Back in 2012 Scanner toured with « Live_Transmission: Joy Division Reworked », an audiovisual show with Heritage Orchestra, and in 2014 was Visiting Artist at MIT in Cambridge USA. More recently, he has written works for London Sinfonietta, BBC Concert Orchestra and other real world musicians! One of the most influential Electronic composer, releasing his first CD in 1992 and many other ever since… For our session, he decided to focus entirely on just one machine – the Buchla 200e.
