Label news: Sony unleashes post-classicalmain
Alex Buhr, who used to work for Decca, has just rolled out his new label at Sony.
Based in Berlin, Alex has signed the Icelandic pianist Eydis Evensen (no label is complete without an Icelander), the French-US composer Uele Lamore, the ‘genre-bending’ Iceland band Hugar (too much ice?), and the Berlin electro-acoustic duo Stimming x Lambert.
Alex says: ‘In a musical universe that has, for the most part, moved beyond the confinements of genre, it is expression and values which tie musicians together. With XXIM we are creating a place to bring together likeminded acts whose visions we share, to support them in their musical and visual adventures, and to help them connect with the biggest possible audience. Our ambition is to create a strong, worldwide platform for highly individual, creative artists.’
