MUSIC LABEL FOR CONTEMPORARY COMPOSITION EXPERIMENTAL IMPROVISATION SOUND ART

CD

We have pressed a lot of extraordinary music on CD in the last 20 (and a little more) years. Our collection favours the originality of voices, cultures, concepts, experiments, and we pride ourselves to have given a momentary space to a great variety of sounds and artists. We have always wanted music to take us to places we couldn't have imagined ourselves, and we still feel each and every one of those albums do that in their own terms. Most albums are also available in digital form.

Note that most of our physical albums are also published digitally, you will find a link to the DL on every album page on this website. The digital albums are available on Unsounds' Bandcamp page.
