“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, including 2016’s Dream Maps. I use composition, improvisation and sound-design to develop my pieces.
This is what has been said about my work: “STARTLINGLY ORIGINAL” **** London Observer, “IMMERSIVE” Mojo, “PROFOUNDLY BEAUTIFUL” Jazzwise, “UTTERLY TRANSFIXING” Prog Magazine “HYPNOTIC” The Guardian, UK, “COMPLETELY ADDICTIVE” The Wire, “TRANSCENDENT” **** BBC, “BEAUTIFUL… MESMERIZING” All Music Guide.
The pool of outstanding musicians I have collaborated with have worked with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Bjork, Michael Jackson, Brian Eno, George Michael, Robert Plant and David Sylvian. I have created music with Arve Henriksen, Byron Wallen, Evi Vine, B J Cole, Henry Lowther, Cleveland Watkiss, Emily Burridge and many other amazing talents.
I have collaborated with legendary sound engineer Phill Brown (Traffic, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Talk Talk etc.) on several of my projects.
I am also a film-maker, having made over 20 short and longer-form films. I perform live with my Dream Maps band and imagery from my Breath Project www.breathproject.net.
I have been invited to talk about my work by TED in the UK and USA. These talks and a wide range of my work is on my website at www.philipclemo.com

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.
