Here is part 2 of conversation with composer Philip Venables, if you missed part 1 then you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JqmmSUcrqY
Philip Venables has been described as a “composer of ferocious dramatic instincts” and “an arrestingly original musical personality” by Alex Ross in The New Yorker and as “one of the finest composers around”by the Guardian. Philip’s output covers opera, music theatre, multimedia concert works, chamber music and song, an eclectic range of styles and influences, and themes such as social politics, violence, gender and storytelling.

The piece Philip collaborated on with performer David Hoyle is entitled Illusions.
Philip also referred to the installation for Manchester’s Canal Street, entitled Music For a Busy City.
Thank you to Philip for giving me their time to talk more about their work.
