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.

Enzo Minarelli, “de revolutionibus“

We are excited to announce Other Minds Records’ bid into the world of vinyl records with de revolutionibus: sound homage to Copernicus, a new release from legendary text-sound poet Enzo Minarelli. This limited edition release features a full color 11″x22″ insert with notes on each of the works by the composer.

Minarelli compares the revolution of sound poetry to the revolution that Copernicus brought about with his discovery of the heliocentric nature of the solar system. Just like Copernicus put the sun at the center of the solar system, sound poets centered the human voice—and thus the sensuous nature of a text—over traditional systems of syntax.

Elements of glitch music, pulsing drums, and grooving low frequencies are paired with more traditional elements of phonetic poetry creating an extraterrestrial hybrid, part avant-pop and part maximalist Dada treatise.

Christopher Luna-Mega: Time’s Arrow
Release Date: February 18, 2022

Time’s Arrow collects five previously unavailable pieces by Bay Area composer Christopher Luna-Mega that explore the variety of methods that the composer has developed to create music from environmental sound and information. Christopher Luna-Mega has carved out a unique niche in contemporary composition, sculpting music that reveals and sonifies hidden corners of the natural world. Time’s Arrow points towards the multiplicity of approaches necessary to not only understand our world but to appreciate and learn to live in harmony with it.

Chacon/Nakatani/Sanistevan – inhale/exhale
Release Date: TBD

inhale/exhale documents the second meeting of the New Mexico-based trio of guitarist Raven Chacon, percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani, and bassist Carlos Sanistevan. The trio recorded the material that would become the album in North America’s oldest church – the San Miguel Mission of Santa Fe. The two sidelong pieces on inhale/exhale are presented as they were performed – unedited and without overdubs. The group takes the notion of the power trio to a new level – each member balancing the others while pushing the music forward.
