Phil Maguire // zeemijl CD

¥ 1,980
  • Availability:

A sound source produced by Phil Maguire, who presides over London's noise label Verz, at EMS in Stockholm. Includes a 1-hour long Serge synth drone.

Recorded during a residency at Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm in 2019, zeemijl is a new longform composition from Phil Maguire. Maguire brings his lightness of touch to analog synthesis: freezing textures in space, allowing the listener to suspend themselves in glacial washes of sound.

Dutch for'nautical mile', the title is a gentle encouragement towards considerations of stasis and wide expanses; porous borders; connections across distances. In constant yet barely perceptible flux, we reach toward one another.

--------------------

Phil Maguire is an artist from Scotland working with sound. Utilizing computers, synthesizers, and tape equipment, Maguire produces music and sound works that explore emptiness and malfunction, of self and of machine. These works are informed by his experience composing, performing, and presenting works across the spectrum of minimalism. They place timbre under the microscope; examining fine details of sound over extended durations, and are often very quiet; very loud; loud made quiet; quiet made loud.
