Features » Hard to pin down
Musician and performance artist Neil Phillips is a founder of PVC and Eclectic, and originator of the daft / inspired 366 T-shirts project.
He collaborates with artists and musicians from exotic backgrounds, like Slovakia, Morocco, Bengal and – er – Wrexham.
Adam, over at Bootstrap Café, has an interview in which Neil talks about what he does.
“On a typical night (at Eclectic), you might get a traditional Chinese musician like Yang Yang…or someone …playing ambient electronic sounds, plus an acoustic singer/songwriter, and maybe a rock band. In between the acts, there will be DJing of interesting tracks…
Then there’s the art and visual side of Eclectic providing opportunities for artists to create installations and moving image to showcase and enhance the live events…
This autumn we are planning an open air event based around the Supermarket songs which will be staged on the Bailey Head. Kinokulture will be helping to curate a series of films and videos which will be projected as a backdrop and we have some more ideas based around art and performance. We are also networking with other towns around the country that have action groups fighting against supermarket developments who will be invited to come along.”
