“MESMERISING” **** The London Times - I transform the ordinary into extraordinary, creating complex sound worlds with evolving musical forms and atmospherics. I use soundscaping, guitar layering, treated voice and a diverse range of acoustic and electronic instruments to build hypnotic musical landscapes.
I have released six critically acclaimed albums, using composition, improvisation and sound-design to develop pieces. You can hear excerpts at: https://www.philipclemo.com/music/

It was a very smooth and nice collaboration. Philip is a great musician, easy to communicate and work with and he came up with some wonderful ideas! We also discovered to be pretty much aligned in terms of musical and cultural references. Hope we may continue collaborating in the future. Compliments for his own musical and artistic projects!
Fantastic work by Philip! Great to communicate and work with. Highly recommended!
Phil is a really creative musician and producer. His knowledge of the technology and ability to realise a remit is absolutely five star. His soundscapes are mesmerising and I always find his work to be wonderfully inspiring.
Phil, is a wonderful unique creative musician and is very easy to work with. i love Phil`s approach to music especially to vision, where explores his fantastic arsenal of unique sounds. He will take you into areas we are all looking for and you won't be disappointed with the results.
I have found Phil to be a truly creative force. He has unique talents and a fantastic ear. I have had the pleasure of performing on a number of his recordings and have always been insipred by his sound worlds.
