Yann Novak took over Dragon’s Eye Recordings from his father in 2005, and then went on to release dynamic works of ambient, microsound, field recordings and everything in between. Through these efforts, artists like Son of Rose/Kamran Sadeghi, Tyler Potts, Wyndel Hunt, Marc Manning, and others at the edge of the field could build communities, and find a wider audience for their work.

From 2005 - 2011, Dragon’s Eye Recordings published 60 CD-R and CD releases, including work by Ælab; Celer; Robert Crouch; Corey Fuller; i8u; Lissom; Mem1; Steve Peters; Simon Whetham, among many of today’s most inventive sound artists. DER became successful beyond our wildest dreams—with many titles selling out within weeks of their release—while building an international community of like minded artists and listeners.

From 2012 through today, we took a hiatus due to increased studio demands, and we’re now gearing back up for our re-launch in 2014, with your support. The campaign will fund a stronger and more focused DER, releasing works on CD only, which will give the label access to broader distribution unavailable for CD-R formats.

Now through 2014, DER will finalize and issue 4 new CD releases by Yann Novak; Pinkcourtesyphone; Steve Roden; and a collaboration by Lawrence English + Stephen Vitiello. Funds received during the campaign will pay for duplication and printing of the 4 CDs, Marketing, and Rewards. Any funding received above our campaign goal would pay for further new releases by Robert Crouch; Robert Curgenven; Ian Hawgood; and France Jobin in 2015.

Stretch Goal #1 ($7000)
Reaching this goal will ensure a stronger relaunch through greater financial flexibility and reinvestment in label operations.

Stretch Goal #2 ($8000)
Reaching this goal will ensure funds to publish at least 1 of the 2015 releases (Robert Crouch, Robert Curgenven, Ian Hawgood OR France Jobin).

Stretch Goal #3 ($10,000)
Reaching this goal will ensure funds to publish all 4 of the 2015 releases (Robert Crouch, Robert Curgenven, Ian Hawgood AND France Jobin).

Risks and challenges

With 60 releases behind us in CD-R, CD, and online digital formats, DER will successfully complete its CD release goals in 2014, bringing you four exciting new volumes. Our February 2014 releases by Yann Novak and Pinkcourtesyphone are completed, and are now ready for their final touches and packaging when the campaign is successful.

September releases by Lawrence English + Stephen Vitiello; and Steve Roden are currently in development stages, and are expected to be released on schedule.

If for any reason one of the September releases is delayed, we will still press the other one and get it to you on time, with the remaining work to be delivered as soon as it is completed. We have also built in a flexible press budget that can adjust with printing prices, so that your cost remains stable and in line with your contribution.

Thank you for helping to re-launch Dragon’s Eye with four CDs to challenge and absorb!
