Last update: 18th October 2022





2012


After finishing his work on the solo album City Of Dreams, Anthony Phillips is already back on Atmosphere Library projects in the second half of the year. With Chris White he produces some material for Cinematic Drama and with Samuel Bohn he works out the complete material for Documentary Atmospheres. Ant also contributes to The Fantastic And The Wonderful. And for the first time he is working together with Chris White and Richard Dutnall for the publisher 9 Lives Music - project name: The Competition Toolkit!





2013


The next library commissions continue seamlessly in 2013. For Universal Trailer Series, he produced a track together with Andrew Skeet, Andrew Britton and David Goldsmith for the project Psychological Thriller. He also produces some vocal numbers again with Chris White and Lettie Maclean for the Atmosphere project The Summer Soundtrack. For Documentary Science, Ant teams up again with Samuel Bohn, and for Chappell Publishing, he records the bulk of guitar tracks for their Pure Guitar project, also tying in Chris White and his old friend Enrique Berro Garcia as co-writers for some tracks. Four tracks from this will be released next year on the career-spanning 5CD box set Harvest Of The Heart: An Anthology, which marks the beginning of Anthony Phillips' new label deal with Esoteric Recordings.

1981


2017 marks the start of a whole series of library works that he composes and produces together with his engineer and musician James Collins, who has been working with him for two years now. The first of these are pieces for Music House's Science And Technology project, followed by the complete Drones 2.0 project for Addictive Tracks - their debut for this new publisher.


Together with the Italian pianist Gabriele Baldocci, Ant is also composing the piece Gemini for two pianos, which will be premiered live in early 2018 by Baldocci and the pianist Martha Argerich, to whom the piece is dedicated.



1981


The two continue seamlessly with the projects Natural World for KPM and Exotic Journeys 2 for Addictive Tracks, for which Martin Robertson is also involved for some contributions. Further joint library projects for Atmosphere will follow: the new Humans series, for which four chapters will be worked out entirely by the two of them, as well as the two complete issues 6 and 7 of the Travelogue series.
