In the midst of the Lockdown, whilst realising that everything he usually does is a collaboration with a group of people standing in the same room, Phil came across a Lou Reed interview where Lou talked about writ­ing the song Vicious and about how it was an as­sign­ment from Andy Warhol. Andy gave Lou the ti­tle and the first line and, ac­cord­ing to Lou, the rest was easy be­cause it be­came about fin­ish­ing an as­sign­ment. The first dif­fi­cult step had been done by some­one else. Phil then wrote to some fellow artist colleagues around the planet and asked them for an assignment – the ti­tle and first line of a song – Maybe there’s a song they’d like to hear that no-one’s writ­ten yet?


ASSIGNMENTS #1  contains seven songs written by Phil
after song titles and and first lines were suggested by:

Jacob Wren –  a writer and performance-maker based in Montreal
Paloma Ayala – an artist focusing on social-based artistic practices, originally from Mexico, now based in Switzerland
Charbel Haber – a composer, performer and songwriter from Beirut, Lebanon
Erin Hawkins – a writer and teacher living in Ontario, Canada
Renée van Trier – a musician, performer and painter from Tilburg, Netherlands
