Phil’s Music Laboratory – Live At Lux (2014)
Inspired by the idea of creating music out of the moment and composing for a bigger orchestra Philipp created his Music Laboratory. It is a large ensemble providing a big fat sound, but at the same time it is flexible and spontaneous. The acoustic setting reaching from damped piano strings through basclarinet and muted horns provide a huge variety of soundscapes. Odd Meter Grooves, swing and free play are only parts used to transport energy and emotions to the audience.
