Poet and sound artist Peter Wullen invited me to do a rework of the Jean Tinguely @ Kanal Brut incidental music track he recorded.
Here is his description:
“Incidental music recorded 06.04.2018 at about 3pm @ the Jean Tinguely installation L’enfer, un petit début during the opening weekend of the new art museum Kanal Brut – Pompidou in Brussels.”
It was a great pleasure to read about my film People’s Park Reverie being screened with Robert Robertson’s Oserake at the Hundred Years Gallery in London a few years ago. This event is mentioned in Robert Robertson’s excellent new book, in the countries of the mind.
I am just starting to dive in, but so far this is a very inspirational and poetic read.
You can purchase it here.

I was delighted to discover that “Factory close to the Yangtze River” from The Rain that Fell was featured on the Verzcast radio show on Resonance Extra in late September.
Here is the link if you want to listen. I highly recommend checking out all the programs. This is what their website says:
“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).”
Definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Next week I am off to Salisbury University to deliver a talk and screen some of my films for the visiting artist lecture series (3/12/15). I am really grateful to have the opportunity to showcase my work and to discuss the audiovisual, landscapes, field recordings, and other things with the students of SU. Here is a link to the event. This is part of their exhibition Alternative Topographies In the meantime, below is a clip from a new work I will screen for the lecture along with super 8 films.
A special thanks to Li Xiaoxing for taking a number of us to TonJing last summer. A distinctive place along the banks of the Yangtze River in Jiangsu Province. More on this later
This exhibition starts next week at Salisbury University. I am really thrilled to be included.

Artists include: Alejandro Acierto, Kristen Anchor, Matt Dombrowski, Stephen Ellis, Johanna Evans-Colley, Felix Frederick, Adam Hurwitz, Ron Lambert, Christine Lucy Latimer, Chris Lynn, Edward Morin, Paul Shortt and Filippo Tagliati.
