French sound artist Phillippe Petit, not to be confused with the high-wire artist of the same name, creates music with bizarre instruments like the Electric Psalterion, Hackbrett Cymbalum, and Yuri Landman’s Caterpillar Drum Guitar. He also employs turntables, synthesizers, and unconventional percussive objects. He’s worked with artists such as Lydia Lunch, Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), and Murcof.
Asheville’s XAMBUCA is Chandra Shukla’s sound art project. Chandra has worked with artists such as Genesis P-Orridge and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster).
