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. There are plans to launch a verzzine, with essays, poetry, and photography.

The next event is verz x ame presents…, a mini-tour with Huddersfield-based art:music:experiment.
02/03/18 – Hundred Years Gallery (London)
03/03/18 – Café Ollo (Huddersfield)
Ryoko Akama & Phil Maguire (duo)
Sonic Luz (Klaus Filip & Noid)

verzcast was broadcast the first Sunday of each month, between May and December 2017, on ResonanceEXTRA.
