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
