INDEPENDENT RECORD LABEL FOR CONTEMPORARY MUSIC
Aspen is an independent record label for contemporary music. We issue both improvised music and compositions, often combined in a peculiar interplay.
We strive for detailed design. In every edition the musicians and their music are matched with a related graphic artist. Together they develop the visual extension of the album. Every edition also includes a quote or another textual element that expresses both music and design.
Aspen is Belgian-based but allied with the international scene. Activities include: events, curation, bookings. Aspen aims to be environmentally friendly, since that is the only way to go. Contact us to learn more or check our news feed.
