Over 20 years he has released 6 albums, most recently Dream Maps, developing an individual musical language and working with a diverse and extraordinary group of musicians.
In his film-making he captures imagery from the world around us from highly unusual perspectives, using ground-breaking technology and partnering with world-leading media companies such as Arri & Vision Research to scramble familiarity. His work has been shown at international festivals, London’s V&A Museum & Eden Project in the UK, and on TED.
Through live performance he brings his music, sound-design and imagery together into hypnotic shows.

Music is fundamental to our lives, transporting us to extraordinary places. Imagine if we could learn to experience visual imagery with that same intensity.
UK-based artist, Philip Clemo, works across composition, film, sound-design and live performance. In this talk he delves into his multi-sensory Breath Project and explores the idea that our relationship with the world around us can be hugely enriched if we widen our visual perception.
