Thomas Phillips (author, composer)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Thomas Phillips (born 1969, Raleigh, NC) is an American novelist, composer, and musician. As a composer, he is usually credited as Tomas Phillips.[1]

He has shared concert bills with Francisco López, Sunn O))), and members of Opera McGill, among many others. He was awarded Artist in Residence at Headlands Center for the Arts by the North Carolina Arts Council in 2009. In September 2010, Tokafi made his Quartet for Instruments, composed in residency, album of the month.[2]

Like most of his music, which draws on a range of electronic and modern composition genres, his fiction typically embraces a minimalist aesthetic not unlike certain contemporary French writers associated with Les Éditions de Minuit. Since 2013, his novels, story collections, and scholarship have focused predominantly on literary horror and horror studies. He received his multidisciplinary PhD from Concordia University in Montréal and currently teaches comparative literature at North Carolina State University.
