Electroshock Records: Personalities:  
Phillip B. Klingler

Ambient Noise composer, Phillip B. Klingler, has had a long career in electronic/experimental music. Better known as PBK (the initials of his name), his soundwork has been released on many international record labels and he has performed concerts throughout the U.S. and in Europe. Over the last 18 years numerous collaborations have found him working with a dizzying array of well-known international sound artists such as Vidna Obmana, Asmus Tietchens, Christian Renou (Brume), Jarboe (Swans), Artificial Memory Trace, and many others. His co-projects with Artemiy Artemiev, "Dreams in Moving Space" and "A Moment of Infinity", both won critical praise as ambient/space-music masterpieces, receiving extensive radio airplay around the world and landing in the "Top 50 of the U.S. New Age charts". "Godsend magazine" said this about his music: "(an) exceptional modern composer whose raw, evocative sound manipulations are easily more interesting than better-known peers like the Hafler Trio. PBK's electronic sculpturings are organic in feel, both natural and synthetic, creating entirely new universes, with each track distinctive and personal." 2004 finds PBK continuing to create his challenging soundscape music with several releases planned, performing concerts in and around the Detroit area and working on soundtracks for various independent films.
