Didier Petit is a world-class cellist living in France but traveling all over what Peter Kowald used to call the “Gobal Village”, working with a variety of international improvisers from as diverse places as Finland, China or Neverland. He also created the in situ label, devoted to creative improvised music, twenty years ago, and has organized many concerts and events over the years. This past year, he has travelled to United States regularly, where he recorded “Dont Explain” a solo CD featuring his original compositions.
His upcoming performance at Royal T is part of his “North by Northwest” series, a string of improvised duos and trios unfolding in every major city in the US from New York to Los Angeles.
