Philip Miller is a South African composer based in Johannesburg. Born in 1964, he first practiced law before establishing a career in music. His work is not easily categorized, often developing out of collaborative projects in theatre, film and video. One of his most significant collaborators is the internationally acclaimed artist, William Kentridge. His music to Kentridge’s animated films, and multimedia installations, has been heard in some of the most prestigious museums and galleries all over the world, including MOMA, SFMOMA, The Guggenheim Museums (both New York and Berlin) La Fenice Opera House and the Tate Modern. Out of this collaboration, the live concert series, “ Nine Drawings for Projection” and “ Sounds from the Black Box” has evolved, touring Australia, the UK, Germany, Italy, Belgium, France and the US. In 2007, Miller conceived and composed Rewind, a Cantata for voice, tape and testimony, an award- winning choral work, based on the testimonies of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa. The cantata had its international debut in New York at the Celebrate Brooklyn Festival and has been performed at the Williams College 62 Centre for Theatre and Dance, the Market Theatre, Johannesburg, and the Royal Festival Hall, London. In 2008, Miller’s sound installation “ Special Boy” was selected as a finalist for Spier Contemporary, a major, national art exhibition in South Africa. Amongst his more recent commissions, Miller’s composition “ Can you hear that?” was performed for the New York- based Ensemble Pi in 2009. He has released many CDs of his music which include: Rewind, a Cantata for voice, tape and testimony, William Kentridges’ 9 Drawings for Projection, Black Box/ Chambre Noire, The Thula Project. African Soundscapes and Shona Malanga. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
