Recorded during a residency at Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm in 2019, zeemijl is a new longform composition from Phil Maguire. Maguire brings his lightness of touch to analog synthesis: freezing textures in space, allowing the listener to suspend themselves in glacial washes of sound.
Dutch for ‘nautical mile’, the title is a gentle encouragement towards considerations of stasis and wide expanses; porous borders; connections across distances. In constant yet barely perceptible flux, we reach toward one another.
Recorded April 2019 at Elektronmusikstudion Stockholm
Edited, mixed, and mastered April – May 2020
