Lydia Lunch b. 1959
Lydia Lunch & Philippe Petit - Twist Of Fate (2010)
Lydia Lunch has for the past 3 decades forged a unique body of work that bares testimony to a creative schizophrenia which encompasses film, poetry, the spoken & written word, music and photography.

She was voted by „Time Out New York“ as one of the most influential performers originating from NYC and has worked with dozens of musical renegades including Sonic Youth, Omar Rodriguez, Nick Cave and Einstürzende Neubauten.

Her large and diverse body of work typically features provocative and confrontational delivery and has maintained an anti-commercial, do-it-yourself ethic, operating independently of major labels and distribution deals.

Philippe Petit is interested in soundtracks, even if he creates original music he’d rather be introduced as a „musical travel agent“ than a composer. Petit uses turntables and laptops to build up electronic layers and take advantage of vinyl material to fondle released sounds. - by Radu Lupo


"... encounter the turntable madness of Petit, the psychedelic electronics and biting, sarcastic voice of Lunch in full effect. Almost like popmusic at times, but then at others more largely, extensive soundscapes in which Lunch' voice meanders about. A work that can be easily labelled as very successful throughout." - Vital Weekly, Holland
