Nick Phillips is a classically trained, award winning film composer, music producer, sound designer and creative director. He has created acclaimed work across the worlds of film, tv, advertising, branding, art, fashion, science and technology.
He began his career as an artist and music producer and is currently writing his first orchestral album. He has recently produced new singles by artists Volk and Lou Hayter.
His love of working with moving image, coupled with a strong desire to learn about music and sound in feature film, led to him joining the Disney/Marvel Sound Edit/Mix team at Shepperton Studios where he worked on The Avengers, Iron Man and Tron to name a few.
His first feature film as composer, Abducted, won him the Marshall Hawkins' Award for Best Original Score at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema. Following on from scoring the multi-award winning 'Escape from Isis' directed by Edward Watts, he is currently scoring a new documentary directed by Dan Edge, both for PBS America/Channel 4.
Incorporating his love of collaboration and innovation, he recently worked with the magician, Dynamo, as music director, composer and sound designer for his 'Seeing Is Believing' worldwide stadium tour, the second largest solo magic show in history, as music director and composer on the Europe-wide interactive campaign for the launch of the new Fiat 500X - 'The Power of X'. He also worked with renowned creative agency Hingston Studio to create the music/sound of the Bentley Bentayga, mixing the music inside the cars' 20 speaker system.
Alongside Andrew Hale (Sade), Nick created additional music for the BAFTA winning soundtrack and sound design for the computer game LA Noire, which included recording a 43 piece orchestra at Abbey Road Studios.
In addition to his work in film and television, he is the Creative Director in Residence at Middlesex University, Science and Technology Dept. A project borne of that residency "Into the Frame" includes a collection of Nick’s 3D soundscapes which along with visual and physical/robotic interaction brings experiencing art into the 21st century.
Nick's mission is to create and inspire through music, sound and storytelling, utilising collaboration with visionaries, to bring conceptually, emotionally and technically inspiring narratives alive with a unique sonic punch.
