I always looked at the netlabels world with much interest cos' I believe that music distribution has deeply changed in these years and the old building of the traditional discography system is crumbling down, no matter what they can do sheltering to new distribution services as online streaming or online pay-per-downloads.
I had beautiful experiences with the netlabels I dealed with (Negative Sounde Institute above all).
Since the "web for all" as a new form of communication appeared to the world scene I've experienced how certain kind of music and artistic expressions could have never been distributed via the "traditional" music channels. They don't "produce" money and so they are of no interest to the commercial discography, but they DO HAVE an audience, larger than one can expect.
That's why I personally think that netlabels start where discography ends. And that's the reason why netlabels MUST distribute online music for free, protecting the artists at the same time.
The hard matter that a pro musician however has to be paid somehow, but a non-pro musician can produce valid music and be named artist as well as the pro, is a subject too complex and too long to discuss here, so let's discard it.
Sucu Music is my idea for a netlabel, created with the help of some friends on September 2013.
Sucu Music mainly was born driven by two needs:
1. I was tired of publishing on music sites things that was hard to make listen to people, despite of the social sharing efforts (no fear to admit it).
2. I thought that creating a netlabel only for my music woud have been quite stupid, so... let's do something not only for me but for the "bleeding art and artists" (Pink Floyd, The Wall), favoring local projects first, and all the creative musicians dealing with ambient electronic and experimental music with all their "manifestation and hybridization" (Tony Colina).
Who's helping me in this project?
Luca Sproviero, creative drummer, musician and producer, fond in good music, reading and single malt.
Tony Colina, talented pianist, multi-instrumentalist, writer, painter and... beer
Vincenzo Scuderi, smart web designer, music photography and comics lover, biker
Here is our manifesto, written by Tony, taken from the "About" section of the netlabel site.
Sucu Music is a netlabel based in Enna, Sicily, Italy. It started its operations in September 2013 and its aim is to produce and promote stimulating music entities, both local and otherwise.
The musical genres it deals with are ambient, experimental music, electronic music, improvisation in all their possible incarnations, manifestations and hybridizations.
Sucu Music wants to be a space wherein all the relational dynamics between and among these genres can develop and interact, bouncing from a field to the other as in a hall of mirrors, or a network of cross-references, led only by the musicians’ creativity and artistic feeling. A space wherein the freedom of musical action is not smothered by any restrictive logics of a commercial nature.
