Over 20 years Philip Clemo has created 6 albums, working with an extraordinary group of musicians including Arve Henriksen, Byron Wallen, B J Cole, Theo Travis, Evi Vine, Cleveland Watkiss, Emily Burridge, Simon Edwards, Pete Lockett, Martin Ditcham and Martyn Barker. Alongside his scored elements Clemo often works with ‘blind improvisation’ where musicians respond to pieces with no prior knowledge of what they are about to hear. This keeps things volatile and surprising. On his three most recent albums he has worked with renowned sound engineer Phill Brown (Traffic, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Talk Talk) and together they have constructed many magical sonic spaces for musicians to explore.
His new album, working title Cloud Vertebrae, is currently in the early stages of development.
