Artist Biographies:

"Discreet saxophonist or virtuoso, composer and director with personal sound, musicologist and electronic luthier.

Sixteen years of studying saxophones with Philippe Di Betta gave him a taste for music beyond aesthetics, and his interest in the analysis materialized at the University of Poitiers by obtaining the Meshuggah mastery, an atypical metal formation.

In addition to the institutional framework, he is involved in projects of contemporary music, Mandingo, dance, Marc Ducret's Sense de la Marche, Anthurus d'Archer and the metal collective Klonosphère.

In 2008, he will join Louis Sclavis ' quintet and shortly thereafter Daniel Yvinec' s National Jazz Orchestra. Other collaborations will be born, notably with François Sarhan, the whole Ictus, Amarillis, the company of the Musiques à Ouïr. He performs solo, duo in Rhizottome, in his power-trio Killing Spree, with Kino-Sounds, XXO, Coronado...

Attracted just as much by the poetic and social aspect of the music as the technical means to give him life, it is in self-taught that he was trained in the electronic lutherie, the acoustics, the recording, realizing in particular the five albums of Archer's Anthurus, those of Rhizottome, his productions as a leader or the six discs Tower of Marc Ducret."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Recorded live at Club Soto in April 2018 during Killing Spree's "Boko Boko Tour" in Japan [UrBANGUILD (Kyoto), Club Stomp (Osaka), Soto (Kyoto), Kirchherr (Hamamatsu), FSN Bar Chez Philippe (Kyoto), Iyoyaka no Sato (Kishiwada)]."-Ayler

"Recorded in concert at Club Soto in Kyoto on a Japanese tour that also went through Osaka, Hamamatsu and Kishiwada, this will be the ultimate Ayler Records reference that will not produce new releases after a worthy contribution to creative music (but will continue to market its catalog). The formidable "Lady M" by Marc Ducret will be published by another truly independent musician: Philippe Ghielmetti's no less worthy of [Illusions] ( ) . This disc is deliberately raw formwork: soundcheck atmosphere in short first beach, and hubbub after concert in conclusive beach. The music is unvarnished: energetic to the extreme, but not without subtlety, because its craftsmen are goldsmiths. The site refers to the genre as 'avant-jazz-metal', which is pretty good. This is the second opus of the group and it is a killing, as the name suggests. Violent, turbulent, sweet sometimes, refined too. It is a dive into a music that is not prohibited, provided that the musical art is at the rendezvous. Ideas fuse, avoid collision and collusion, and so much the better! Plunge head first into this experience of really lively music, you will come out as a bath of youth ...."-Xavier Prévost, Rhizottome (translated by Google)
