“Olivier Di Placido (1975, born in Montbéliard, France) is a guitarist, improviser and composer.During the years he has developed an absolutely unique approach to his instrument, being able to play it like a turntable, a synthesizer or a gamelan orchestra. Interested in discovering all the possibilities of the guitar, including the most hidden ones, Olivier has litterally invented a new and hybrid instrument, with unfixed neck and moving pick-up.
He plays all around Europe since more than ten years, collaborating with musicians and improvisers like Jassem Hindi, Clare Cooper, Tony Buck, Mario De Vega, Mat Pogo, Arnaud Rivière, Fritz Welch, Anthea Caddy, Crank Sturgeon, SEC_ and Many Others(w/Francesco Gregoretti),,taking part to international festivals and shows.”(Flussi Festival)
