verz imprint 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), concert series (verznights), and radio show on experimental station ResonanceEXTRA (verzcast). The project attempts to explore ‘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 verznights #003. 2nd September, Hundred Years Gallery, London.
