Over the years Phil’s music has been met with critical acclaim, most recently his music has featured in Donald Glover’s ‘Swarm’ television series.

A blend of both natural and machine based sound is a feature of the entire album and A/V show which Phil created with 11 visual artists from the worlds of film, animation, architecture, computer science, generative art and contemporary dance.
