Originally from West Yorkshire, but now resident in Manchester, composer, bassist and producer Phil France is probably best known as a key collaborator alongside Jason Swinscoe in the Cinematic Orchestra, where he co-wrote, arranged and produced on classic albums including 'Everyday', 'Man With The Movie Camera', 'Ma Fleur' and also the triple award winning soundtrack for 'The Crimson Wing' nature documentary. In 2013 France released his debut solo album 'The Swimmer', an emotive, epic record influenced by the great second wave of film composers including John Carpenter and Vangelis, as well as minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass. Five years later, France presents the follow up, the enigmatically titled, 'Circle', which again represents a very personal journey for the artist. For France the album is an extension of work he began on 'The Swimmer'. A process he has described as: "blocks of sound containing intricate minimal arpeggiated patterns and electronic textures that develop and shift in subtle, original and melodic ways". The trancelike quality, mood and electronic character of title track 'Circle' led France to think of the circular patterns which eventually became a potent concept for the album.

Also available: CIRCLE (LP).
