Welcome to Mythical Records
Formed at the beginning of 2006, Mythical Records already holds a prominent place in the experimental music scenes with a catalog of music that straddles the boundaries between classical music, ambient music, world music, and electronica. The label was formed by a group of 3 professionally trained, experimental classical musicians who met while at the Juilliard school of music. While several generations ago the music industry was built upon lifelong relationships and artist development, many of the larger labels and distributors in the modern music scenes seem to be dominated by a more trend oriented ,"singles" based thinking, not a career based approach that allows and encourages their artists to express their own unique and special voices. The overzealously fast release cycles that the modern industry promotes, says they are not trying to release timeless works, yet that is what we are captivated by and want artists to be creating. So, we decided to launch a record label of our own which will give experimental electronic and classical music composers the attention, development, leadership, and love, which should be so abundant in an industry as full of such creative and intelligent individuals. We are striving to build a catalog of music that will stay with you for the rest of your life, not just something that is "good enough".
This is just the beginning of our story and we hope to welcome you into the fold. Our artists are not fads, nor commodities. We strive to release material you will be in love with for the rest of your life, not just this week. We hope to garden a fountain of inspiration and enlightenment for all to tread upon. We hope to have you as our ally and our friend. Welcome.
