Dave Phillips


dp re/searches and ponders existences and behaviourisms humanimalistically. sound as communication in direct and primal form, a language, a tool of metaphysics, a conscience and a consciousness. opposing the omnipresent restriction and reduction of life and living. sound communications that activate primordial shared emotions otherwise hidden under the debris of civilisation. inviting rumination, encouraging intervention, endorsing catharsis. therapeutical stimulation is acknowledged. sonic activism, ritual protest music.
methods are audio de/construction, psycho-acoustics, sonic rituals, composition and performance. tools are voice, body, field recordings, electronics, objects, video.
topically dp might touch on environmental sensitisation, sentient awareness, animal and human rights, with existentialist connotations, but more so he enunciates how these and related topics interconnect, in a distinct way. dp rings in the era of humanimal.
dp has been sonically active for over 25 years, has appeared on more than 190 releases and has played around 500 concerts in 40 countries.
ritual protest music, sonic activism, humanimalism. composition, audio art, psycho-acoustics, experimental noise, musique concrète, performance. voice, microphones, objects, electronics, field recordings, video.
