ASSIGNMENTS is a new project from Phil Hayes (Phil Hayes & The Trees).

Phil 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


ASSIGNMENTS #1 was recorded and mixed by David Langhard at DALA Studios, Winterthur in 20. – 22. July 2020
