description

Monosphere comprises two iterations of monophonic, autonomous computer music. Performed with a custom Max patch, the pieces explore inhuman and unpredictable dynamics, gradually rendered with extreme quietness. Drones, sine wave clusters, gentle noise.

press

"Hollow drones, fragmented sounds, and a fluctuating bed of pure noise... extensive use of near-silence, highlighting the space that can be occupied by even the smallest of noises... personal and relatable, despite its origins in the artificial." ~ Irregular Crates

artist info

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.
