Sounds Of A Tired City #24: Sonic Pieces

January 12, 2015

Listen to a guest mix featuring some of the finest pieces of Sonic Pieces – even a special one from Jasmine Guffond‘s first album under her real name. ‘Yellow Bell’ is going to be released on 30 January on Sonic Pieces. The compilation is mixed by a good friend of the label, Lingg Wray.

Sonic Pieces is a boutique record label from Berlin, founded and thoughtfully managed by Monique Recknagel. They have always been focusing on quality over quantity, therefore every carefully selected release comes as a limited edition in genuine packaging, hand-crafted with locally produced and designed material. The label’s musical output and unique artwork form a connection between each release that is both recognizable and challenging, while celebrating the difference and individuality of each project. They have released 20 records so far, each of them representing a sonic milestone in the life of the label. Mostly focusing on neo-classical and ambient music (and so much more than that!), they have been working with musicians such as Deaf Center (Erik K Skodvin, Otto A. Totland), Kreng, Nils Frahm, Greg Haines, Dustin O’HalloranHauschka, Hildur Guðnadóttir… Do we need to say more? We certainly don’t, but you should definitely read what Monique has to say about her concept and aesthetics, the hardships of sustaining the label financially, and how does it feel to run a record label as a woman. We even asked her what would she do if there would be no Sonic Pieces…
