Compie quest'anno trent'anni di attività l'etichetta indipendente Cuneiform Records, fondata nel 1984 da Steven Feigenbaum e con sede a Silver Spring (Stati Uniti), punto di riferimento imprescindibile per la promozione a livello internazionale di musiche e musicisti contemporanei in ambito rock e jazz d'avanguardia, oltre che per l'inestimabile lavoro di recupero di materiali storici inediti e rari, con edizioni originali di assoluto rilievo. Sei nuove pubblicazioni da qui a febbraio danno il via ai festeggiamenti: Sonar, Static MotionRaoul Björkenheim, EcstasyThumbscrew, dell'omonimo trio con Mary Halvorson, Michael Formanek e Tomas Fujiwara; Oh No! Not Jazz!, con il ritorno a proprie composizioni del più strepitoso interprete di Zappa per grande ensemble, Ed Palermo; due classici Present in versione estesa e aggiornata, Le Poison Qui Rend Fou e Triskaidekaphobie. Tutti titoli già ora disponibili in prenotazione tramite Bandcamp. Auguri!

Cuneiform Records is an independent record label releasing adventurous, boundary-bursting music by artists from around the world. It was created in 1984 by Steven Feigenbaum, who after running a successful mail-order music business called Wayside Music for 12 years wanted to venture back into the music label business. During high school, he wanted to work with musicians and started a co-op label which was able to put out about 12 albums before it disbanded. He first signed R. Stevie Moore who plays "oddball... pop" and who Feigenbaum describes as "prolific and a real talent". The label continues to look forward towards more interesting and divergent music. Feigenbaum added that he "tr(ies) very hard not to look backwards when it comes to music. I don't want to recreate something I liked back then, but find the musicians who make me excited in the same way that old music did."
