Phil Innes is a composer and “organiser of sound” living in Cornwall in the UK. He makes music and sound for a wide range of contexts including concerts, theatre, film, dance, installations, and mobile device apps. He is also a music educator. He draws inspiration equally from the rock music of his formative years (Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Flaming Lips, Sigur Rós), avant-garde classical (Morton Feldman, György Ligeti), minimalism and post-minimalism (Steve Reich, John Adams), and sound art (Janek Schaefer, Susan Philipsz).
Phil began his musical life by playing electric guitar in rock bands but his natural curiosity and desire to experiment led him to more and more diverse musical projects. Phil’s versatility and eclecticism made him a natural partner to makers of theatre and film and over the last 20 years this has been one of his principal areas of work. His credits include Hall for Cornwall, Effervescent, Kneehigh, Miracle, Collective Arts, o-region, C-Scape, The Ordinalia Company, Tangle, Light Theatre, Seabright Productions and Potted Productions.
Now we see Phil moving into an exciting new phase in his career as he concentrates on concert music and sound art installations.
