After KICK disbanded, Phillip continued to write music for various projects and discovered how the use of non-conventional instrumentation can drastically change an atmosphere of a piece to help provide different settings for stories to be more effectively told within the lyrics and melody. With a new found appetite for writing to visuals and using music to help enhance storylines, in 2020 Phillip began writing to film and is involved in several projects expected to be released in 2021.
