Other Minds Records produces a select catalog of contemporary music exploring areas seldom touched upon by mainstream institutions. We release new works by contemporary and 20th Century composers. We also re-release selected recordings of exceptional value that are hard to find or otherwise unavailable. Making this music accessible to the public is an integral part of our mission, and the proceeds from the sales are used to further our work as new music archivists and advocates. The Other Minds Records catalog is distributed through The Business, Soundohm, and AudioMoves.

Our Latest Release

Middle Ground

Robert Honstein, “Middle Ground”

The violin’s most airy tones complement its most full-bodied resonances, as if they might be a perfect blend in some alternate universe—or perhaps they already are. Composer Robert Honstein explores this very contrast, and its potential commonality, on Middle Ground, which funnels his unembellished compositional style into a search for the middle ground between far-reaching pitches. The three-movement work, performed by violinist Kate Stenberg, is subdued and poignant, imbuing powerful sentiment into each bold, unadorned melody and subtle electronic manipulation.

Enzo Minarelli: De Revolutionibus
Release Date: TBD

Enzo Minarelli’s De Revolutionibus, an homage to Copernicus, emphasizes the revolution introduced by sound poetry half a century ago. As he dared to put the Sun (not the Earth) at the center of the solar system, sound poets put the voice and consequently its sound at the first level of our research, as opposed to the writing or the text.
