Aerophonic Records

Aerophonic Records is a 100% artist-run label. It was founded in the winter of 2013 by well-known Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis (Rempis Percussion Quartet, The Engines, Ballister, Vandermark Five) to document his ongoing work, since many of the non artist-run labels in the world of jazz and improvised music at that time seemed to be giving up a collective last gasp. Today it remains a 100% artist-run entity.

Rempis’ intent with the label is to continue the overall trend of artist control and responsibility that has characterized his own career, and that of jazz artists in the 21st century generally. It gives him more direct contact with his audience, more control over how his work is presented, and more synchronicity between touring schedules and recorded output.
