Phil Collins yes, but not that one.This is a strange collaboration/compilation of ambient, electronical, kraut, experimental, industrial, etc.. music with artists like Pye Corner Audio, Heroin In Tahiti, Demdike Stare, David Sylvian just to name few.
A sound installation and collaborative project with a survival station for the homeless in Cologne (color vinyl).

In 2013 at the Gulliver help for the homeless center in Cologne, English artist and musician Phil Collins installed a phone booth with a free line that anyone could use for unlimited local and international calls on the agreement that the conversations would be recorded and anonymised. The selected material was posted to a group of international musicians serving as the starting point for original new songs. Having worked for a homeless magazine in the 1990’s, Collins has a long-standing interest in issues relating to these communities. Bringing to the fore the lyrical and narrative potential of the human voice when it stands in for those subjects of city life who are purposefully ignored and routinely overlooked, he dramatises the moment of communication as an emotional and ambivalent exchange.

B: Well, I wanted to call you for your birthday, but then I had no money and, you know, but today I found a phone booth where I can call for free.
A: I see. So, and what is the news with you?
B: Me? Oh, not much…Just living, you know. Just living.
(Excerpt from Telephone conversation #48)

Phil Collins (born 1970, Runcorn, England) lives in Berlin and Cologne, where he is Professor of Video Art at the Academy of Media Arts. Since the late 1990s, Phil Collins’ diverse practice has addressed the act of image-making, examining how we participate in and understand culture through the camera’s lens. Characteristic of the artist’s approach is a close engagement with place and communities.

This double LP, released by NERO magazine and Shady Lane Productions, gathers selected materials, both texts and audio recordings, from Phil Collins‘s project of the same name, for which Collins collaborated with guests of Gulliver, a self-described “survival station for the homeless” in Cologne, Germany. There, Collins installed a phone booth for free and unlimited local and international calls, on the condition that the conversations would be recorded and anonymized. Collins sent selected material to an international group of musicians, to serve as the starting point for original songs that he then presented as 7″s in specially-designed listening booths overlooking Cologne’s central train station. Collins produced the work for his 2013 solo exhibition In every dream home a heartache (curated by Anna Brohm), at Museum Ludwig in Cologne, where he first presented it. The work is a headfirst dive into a city, tuning in to its many unheard stories. Having worked for a homeless magazine in the 1990s, Collins has a long-standing interest in issues relating to these communities. Bringing to the fore the lyrical and narrative potential of the human voice when it stands in for those subjects of city life who are purposefully ignored and routinely overlooked, he dramatizes the moment of communication as an emotional and ambivalent exchange. On January 5, 2001, Gulliver opened in a railway arch under the Hohenzollern Bridge, in the immediate vicinity of Cologne’s main train station, the banks of the Rhine, and the old town. Gulliver is the first institution of its kind in Germany, offering a wide range of services with unusually long hours of operation.
