Devoted to experimental, noise, and electronic music
This collection explores in depth the historical bases of electronic music and analyzes the slow emergence of noise, from the 1910s to now. A series of 2-CD/3-LP sets culling material from the most celebrated composers down to the most obscure artists.
aural documents 10/10/2009 22:22
Many artists and writers have produced, a long time ago, luminous food for today. With this archival collection mainly focused on the voice, we present a series of rare or unpublished documents about every aspect of the avant-garde.

From the '90s to now
A collection of electronic music in its more abstract form. After exploring the first emergence (1992-1996), we try to develop what is being produced in-between categories: microsound, laptop music, post-concrete, noise, industrial, turntablism...

From the '50s to the '80s
An attempt at rediscovering some lost tapes sleeping in the backroom of a studio. Just because we are used to listening to new electronics of today, we can appreciate all the beauty - furious or subtle - found in pieces created long ago.

Rare recordings from the 20s to the 60s: mainly black music
Dr. Boogie, radio personality and collector, makes us discover several unsung aspects of the music of the '40s to the '60s: forgotten R'n'B, wild rockabilly, hillbilly, instrumentals, Texan surf... GMH slowly assembles collections out of productions from the '20s to '30s.

Ritual music & field recordings
This collection offers a series of location recordings made without the use of a studio. The object is to capture music as it happens. All forms may be covered - given there is no such thing as pure music - but we believe it is better not to release what is wrongly called world music, a hybrid form forced down by globalization.
music in the margins 20/01/2010 16:01
Any music that doesn't fit in a specific category, music composed regardless of any criterion, either in an institutionalized setting or simply in the margin of social acceptance.
new series framework 13/10/2009 16:32
An extension of our Concrete Electronics Noise, a brand new mix-up of unusual conceptions of sound material by young unknown composers, well known not-so-young composers and old but clever composers. Limited editions

Things we want to keep
This is a collection of objects all related to the label (although that relation can be thin or vague) and of such interest that we want to distribute them and be involved with them: rare releases, collector items, limited-edition vinyls, box sets, books, magazines, catalogues, artworks. Anything that may help outwit the world of the lotus eaters.

Post-rock and acoustics
Works beyond categories, with sometimes an idea of songwriting or a simple sound organisation. A mix-up of electric and acoustic tones, post-rock, ambient, drum 'n' bass, hip hop, soul, folk, collective works, a cappella songs.
