Philip Robinson back to musicians
Philip is a musician, composer and sound artist living in Devon, UK. I mix improvising and composing to produce music and soundscapes for live performances with film, theatre, dance, art, place. For the past 35 years I have collaborated with both well-known, and unknown, musicians. I particularly enjoy the inspirational cut and thrust of working with so-called "non-musicians": people with profound disabilities, asylum seekers, those in prisons, psychiatric units, and other often marginalized communities. I make music with blown, plucked, bowed, beaten and spun instruments, electronic devices, field recordings, everyday objects, or anything to hand. At the heart of my work is a belief in the transformational qualities of inclusive music-making for all, and a commitment to the idea of collaboration.
