Philippe Ollivier has had a diverse musical career, from traditional music to contemporary circus. A genuinely iconoclastic bandoneon player who mixes acoustic technique with electronics, this self-taught musician creates original compositions for films and theatre, contemporary danse and other various genres. He is the founder of OstinatO with Yannick Jory, Bugel Koar with Marthe Vassallo and he performs regularly with the contemporary circus Le P’TIT CIRK.

In 2009 he created the Carlonéon, a mobile musico-cinema caravan and in 2010 he came out with Malenki Minki a solo CD conceived, improvised and recorded in Tchernobyl. Since then, he has created Opium and P.O.I.S Photosonore, both 3d conceptual sound-around installations.

In association with Christophe Baratay, he invented the original softwares, Logelloop and Granulascore, two computer programs essential to his most recent compositions. In 2014 and 2017 he wrote Toco la Toccata and Tubulus, two solo pieces for bandoneon and Logelloop.
