In a year of upheavals and uprisings, isolation and self-reflection, we’ve found strength and solace in the work of the artists whose music we represent. During this difficult time, when concert halls across the globe have gone dark, we are proud to have given a platform to 15 widely-heralded recording projects that defy categorization. Indeed, 2020’s many obstacles highlight the importance of recordings to cut through our sense of isolation, connecting disparate households and communities through the shared experience of music. Recordings can also play an important role in the struggle for equity in the world of new music: when we ask artists to manifest their visions fully and directly, using the recorded album as the platform for their creativity, we move away from the hierarchies and power dynamics that still persist in our community, allowing new voices to be heard.
Today, we’re asking you to join our effort to help lift up the artistic community, at a time when it’s needed so desperately. Your donation goes directly to the development and support of our album releases, with 100% of album sales going directly to the artists. With your help, we can continue to provide this valuable resource for both you and our artistic community. Thank you so much, now and always.
