Phil Maguire specialises in reductive music that explores emptiness and malfunction. He uses cheap electronics, open source software, synthesis and obsolete audio equipment to create sparse sonic environments for personal reflection. These are often very quiet; very loud; loud made quiet; quiet made loud.
Recent releases include Working Title with James L. Malone (Confront Records, 2018), brak (Soft Error, 2017) and Empty Damage (Falt, 2017).
He lives in London, where he frequently performs both solo and collaboratively. He also runs verz, a label for quiet music and sound art.
