Philip Clemo’s work is “mesmerising” (The Times), “startlingly original” (The Observer) and “beautiful, transcendent… indefinable” (BBC). Clemo has worked in film and composition for nearly 30 years. Mesmer (2012) is the most recent of his five critically acclaimed albums. He’s worked with world-renowned musicians including BJ Cole, Henry Lowther, Emily Burridge and Cleveland Watkiss.
In the 1990s he worked as a film editor on one of the BBC’s flagship programmes, Panorama, and went on to work for a number of years as a freelance director, editor and media consultant for clients including the BBC, National Film and Television School and Avid Technology.
He started making his own films in 1989, working extensively in Asia and more recently in Iceland and Norway, making ‘The Air Holds Still On My Breath’, gaining the support of Arri Media, and attracting the attention of David Lynch’s producer Joni Sighvatsson and Francis Coppola’s producer Fred Fuchs. This work has become the driving creative vision behind the BREATH Project.
