about

The Phil Sessions are guerrilla recordings of Saint Louis artists in public spaces.

In early 2007, I was asked by the now-defunct quarterly magazine 52nd City (52ndcity.com) to contribute a Saint Louis-centric recording for their SOUND issue, which was to include a CD. For my contribution, I invited eight other artists to join me for a few days of unauthorized recording in sonically unique Saint Louis locations. These impromptu performances were captured in the midst of unassuming environments and, as much as they each feature a different artist, each one also tells a story of the space around them.
