PROFILE

Nicholas Phillips has created acclaimed work across the worlds of Film, TV, Advertising, Art, Fashion, Science and Technology, recently scoring the film for Lewis Hamilton's 'GQ Man of the Year' award.

 

As a puzzle solver and aural mastermind, Phillips worked with the magician, Dynamo, as music director/supervisor, composer and sound designer for his 'Seeing Is Believing' worldwide stadium tour - the second-largest solo magic show in history, and was also music and sound-director on the multi-sensory interactive launch of the new Fiat 500X.

As a composer, Phillips has written the music score to some of the most important documentaries, including the Jane McMullen directed “54 Days: China and the Pandemic”, which has become the most-streamed documentary of 2021 for PBS America, the Dan Edge/Mongoose directed film “Escaping Eritrea”, Alison Millars' "Kids In Crisis" and the multi-award-winning “Escape from Isis” directed by Edward Watts.

Phillips' first feature film score, Abducted, won him the Marshall Hawkins' Award for Best Original Score at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema.

His unwavering dedication to sonic application has seen him work with the Disney/Marvel Sound Edit and Mix team at Shepperton Studios - working on movies such as The Avengers, Iron Man and Tron.

He created the interior sonic world for the launch of the new Bentley Bentayga, composing, producing, and mixing the audio landscape inside the cars' 20 speaker surround-sound system. Nicholas also created "Into the Frame", a collaboration with Middlesex University, which included a collection of his own 3D soundscapes, alongside visual, physical and robotic interaction, pushing the boundaries of experiential art.

Phillips continues to expand his unique style of sensory storytelling, with visionary collaborations that inspire and challenge the status quo of sound and music.
