Laboratorie New Music represents a new aesthetic in contemporary new music. We are a music label, publishing house, and web presence set forth to define an evocative approach to a radically disruptive medium of musical development and interpretation.
We evolved from the activities of a group of composers and performers who are intent on being productive and inventive in the cause of new music. While we are keenly aware that championing the cause of new music is not new; we have assembled ourselves as members of a tenacious tradition of performers and composers self organization defining the relationship between music, art, and life.
A variety of crucial, and still, most relevant ideation about nothingness or emptiness in music, has gained profound philosophical prominence in the history and development of complex notation. These traditions share the insight that in order to explain both the great mysteries and mundane facts about our performance experience as composers, ideas of ‘nothingness’ must play a primary role. Contrarian to this theorem, we present this architecture that is at once interpretative and constructive.
