Tom Phillips scores The Swamp for American Experience

OBT Music's Tom Phillips just completed the music score for The Swamp, a 2 hour history of The Everglades set to air on PBS's American Experience in 2019. The film, produced by Randall MacLowry and edited by Mark Dugas focuses on how The Everglades suffered due to man's desire to turn it into an agricultural source of profit, constructing dredged canals to drain it and dikes to control the flow of water. All proved to be disastrous and also proved to be irrevocably damaging to the natural order of one of the most wondrous environments on the planet. A fascinating film that is truly eye opening.
