3.2 origami republika labels
Most of the releases have been issued in the smallest editions directly from one of our (sub)labels mentioned below. The more regular editions of CDs, vinyls, cdrs and web albums have been issued via other labels, but they all have a number in one of these (sub)label catalogues.
As said, much of the material has only been presented to a limited amount of ears, meaning that the option of having some of this stuff reissued (by other labels) is interesting.
We ARE looking for special agents who would dedicate a little time and effort putting our stuff into circulation; we can deliver both master and artwork.
"One of the first persons to set up a record company, if not the first, had a gramophone with which he could record. He recorded his own voice, among other things. The symbol of his record label was an angel surrounded by five stars. When he died, he left his recording apparatus, his recordings and his dog to his brother. That's the famous dog that sits by the gramophone and listens to his master's voice. The company with this label became huge. This for me is where the divide in the music industry lies, between the person who labels his own voice with an angel and the dog that listens to his master's voice." - EN A185

UNESCO [underground] >>> This Origami Republika socio-philantropic archive is dedicated to the documention of the roots of numusic, lower arts, zoorealism and reframed folk culture around the fringes of our network. It is our local global jukebox and Alan Lomax tribute page. Conserved sounds from the great history of dissenter art and obscure subculture - on one or another level. The values conveyed are not necessarily those of another organisation with a similar name. The selections are made by Karen Karnak Elliot A97 of Origami Diskordika, lay-out and uploading by Boe A22.
