In celebration of the 20 year history of Auricular Records, the experimental/soundart record label is announcing plans to create a sister label, Ambit Din. With the new label Auricular Records aims to explore and provide a vehicle for the release of a new canvas of soundart focused on field recordings. There will be four separate divisions to Ambit Din in order to properly classify the releases:
ethnikos - a way to document oral presentations and ethnomusicology
naturae - aimed at the collection of environmental recordings and bioacoustics
envirounen - audio documentation of environments such as workplaces and cityscapes
arte - avant-garde, experimental and ambient music projects utilizing field recordings as the source material
Initially, there are plans to release a small number of compilations that include recordings from each categorization together to serve as an overall introduction to the label. Releases will be limited, hand numbered editions.
