Mr Philip Chambon

Senior Lecturer in Music


I am a composer who has worked extensively in the areas of popular music, film and TV, visual arts and contemporary dance and ballet. My work has been broadcast, commercially released and performed worldwide.

I have been signed as an artist to Warner Bros. and Sony record labels, and have recorded in the legendary Air London, Trident, Olympic and Morgan studios. I achieved a Top 20 UK hit with my band Tonight in 1978 with "Drummer Man", which I co-wrote.

As well as lecturing, I am the enterprise officer for the Visconti Studio at Kingston University. The Visconti Studio is a partnership between the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, the British Library and the Science Museum. It is at the centre of a research and teaching project 'The Heritage and Future of Analogue Recording and Production' where invited artists, students and academics research and learn about music production.
