new album from Anthony Phillips & Joji Hirota
Between 1994 and 2000, Anthony and Joji collaborated on a number of outstanding soundtracks for wildlife television programmes in the award-winning Survival series. In addition, Anthony also wrote and recorded the music for a programme in the BBC series The Natural World.
Now for the first time highlights from these richly atmospheric and evocative soundtracks are available as a new collection: Wildlife. From the flooded forests of the Amazon to the huge expanses of the Serengeti, from the cold wastes of Kamchatka in Russia to the peaceful tranquillity of the Norfolk countryside - the music of Wildlife reflects these habitats and the amazingly diverse range of creatures that populate them.
Wildlife features selections from the music for the programmes Creatures of the Magic Water, Jaguar: Eater of Souls, Serengeti Jigsaw, Web of the Spider Monkey, Dungeons & Dragons, Secrets of a Norfolk Wood, Bears of the Russian Front, Gremlins: Faces in the Forest, Jurassic Shark, Midway Island of Life and Secrets of the Amazon.
Several of the Survival programmes were filmed by the late Nick Gordon and the sleeve notes for the album include Ant's specially written tribute to Nick.
