Phil Maguire is a fiercely experimental electronic musician, improvisor and sound artist. Malfunction permeates his music, utilising sine tone oscillators, noise, found sound, and obsolete audio technology to create intimate, engrossing sonic environments.
Embracing low-cost ethics, Phil’s primary instruments range from microcomputers and battered cassette recorders, to open-source software and plundered online audio. His main concerns are investigations of identity and place, via timbral qualities of sounds stumbled upon in day-to-day life: environment, software, internet.
Phil runs verz imprint, a quiet music label, event series, and radio show.
