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, Shame File Music, and AudioMoves.

Our Latest Release

Lou Harrison: Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin

Lou Harrison: Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin

This recording is a near-unheard early composition by legendary American Maverick composer Lou Harrison, Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin (1936), performed by violinist Kate Stenberg. This short piece was written by the precocious composer when he was barely out of high school, still a teenager, but already a year deep into studies under Henry Cowell, studies that occurred during Cowell’s stint in San Quentin State Prison. The piece was entirely unheard from its composition until it was uncovered by violinist Gary Beswick, who gave the piece its premiere in 1963. It wallowed in the obscurity of juvenilia until composer and Frog Peak Music’s Larry Polansky transcribed the piece from its original manuscript, which found its way to Stenberg.

Hypothetical Moments DVD cover

Carol Law and Charles Amirkhanian: Hypothetical Moments
Release Date: October 7, 2022

Hypothetical Moments is a DVD of the collaborative works of Carol Law and Charles Amirkhanian, available on video for the first time. Some of the work included within will be familiar to followers of Amirkhanian’s work (Dog of Stravinsky, Mahogany Ballpark), but the vast majority of Hypothetical Moments has been entirely unavailable until now. Both video and audio have been lovingly restored and remastered, opening up a new pathway into the densely layered and referential world that the pair created over the decade covered by this collection.
