verz is a multimedia project that curates and supports quiet music and art, founded in 2016 by Phil Maguire. At present, the project consists of a netlabel (verz imprint) and concert series (verznights). The project attempts to explore the what and why of ‘quiet’ music past and present, and what ‘quietness’ means in contemporary art(s).
verz imprint releases albums of quiet electronics, contemporary composition, and improvisation, and verzcast features interviews with composers, performers, and writers. verzcast was broadcast the first Sunday of each month, between May and December 2017, on ResonanceEXTRA.

verz releases are available on Bandcamp, Big Cartel, and at Tobira Records (JP)

We are currently not accepting demo submissions.
