Great new album, reminds me why I developed such a respect for your music!
"As to be expected, Wondrous Encounters is an excellent presentation of subtle ambient/drone music that transcends simply being "background music". These graceful tones can help take you places mentally. Unfortunately, I haven't paid much attention to his work over the past three years- not purposefully, just haven't been on the ambient scene as of late-, but this is as well refined of a work as I've heard... maybe not the most diverse, but production wise this is spot on. If I hadn't known this was Phillip Wilkerson I would've assumed this was Steve Roach, which is about the highest praise I can give any ambient artist. Recommended for those with an inclination towards soft, slow and mysterious ambient"

This man is a truly great electronic artist. The more I delve into his discography, the more I am enamored with his creations. I just got done listening to Microlinear, and it's definitely his most unique album, as it's a minimal/ambient techno album rather than pure ambient, and it's incredibly enjoyable. It's actually almost identical to what I've been wanting to create myself! Great job!
What draws you back to a piece of music? We all seem to be very self-centered beings, who are mainly interested in us and our own tribulations, and in the end, something emotive in the piece that reminds us of *us* or touches us in a certain way, is what brings us back to music. 154 W Broadway is such a piece- where the composer has removed themselves from the equation, in an attempt to reach the individual listener. This takes a great amount of insight and selflessness, and Phil has achieved this, with this recording. Congratulations.
