homo animalis collects some of dp’s most accomplished work to date. composed between 2009 and 2011 (with two tracks from 2007) these pieces first appeared on limited edition cassettes in russia, poland and in the US. between 2012 and 2014 they were thoroughly reworked and conceived as an album. this album describes a phase in dp’s life/work marked by incisive personal experiences formed into sound. an intensification of the compositional approach and the increased use of classical instruments are some of the more noticable sonic aspects. begun on “?“, “homo animalis“ takes a turn for the more sinister and satirical and contains the quintessence of this phase of life with the hindsight that “?“ couldn’t have. a text on humanimalism, included in the booklet, explores an additional dimension of this album. dp’s humanimalism is a concept worded here for the first time. it describes a developed humanoid existence that has overcome the erroneous religious and material phases and has grown into an empathic creature that has made a clear shift towards an emotion-based existence, with social and environmental senses as primary and inherent functions.www.davephillips.ch
