Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In (Universal/Amazon Prime 2021, composer)
Images of Glasgow swirl to a well-judged score by Andrew Phillips as Ferguson’s story swims into view. Screen Daily
Nailbomber: Manhunt (Netflix 2021, composer)
Nail Bomber: Manhunt… tackles its chosen subject with taut efficiency and restraint, aided by Andrew Phillips’ nerve-wracking score. The Daily Beast
The Detectives: Murder On The Streets (BBC2 4 part series, composer)
A city at night, artfully filmed from above, with a moody and powerful score. It might be Copenhagen – actually, it’s Manchester. The Guardian
Geminate II (Arts Council funded interactive audio visual installation, composer)
They have created a new kind or mirror, one that synthesises us into animated and illuminated essence, which is actually very poetic, greatly enhanced by the excellent musical score composed by Andrew Phillips. Total Creative Freedom
Grasscut (Composer, Producer, Performer)
Eerie, and utterly compulsive Irish Times
As a rapprochement between the unnecessarily divided worlds of electronica and ‘proper’ music it is a complete success. Absolutely lovely The Arts Desk
Epic and immersive Uncut *****
Delightful and unique Mixmag *****
The final cries of “still here, after” at the end of ‘Red Kite’ tie up the record’s longing nicely and speak to the permanence of ‘Home’. Let’s hope they also speak to the longevity of Grasscut, because by doing more with less, ‘Everyone Was A Bird’ soars. The Quietus
‘It’s not the symbol, but the scene’ sings Phillips on ‘Radar’, and the most affecting thing about this inspiring album is that sense of feeling the now. The Wire
