Kukuruku is primarily concerned in presenting independent works of
sonic/ music exploration and it focuses on productions made under
intimate or ‘personal’ circumstances (usually meaning home, live or
field recordings). It stands between free improvisation and free folk,
field recordings and sound poetry, electroacoustic composition and
sound installations; but most of all it traces recordings that possess a
spontaneous and ephemeral essence, much like in the way of
testimony snapshot photography.
Its editions also function as a platform for creative artwork made by
the musicians them selfs or in collaboration with the kukuruku team.
Kukuruku started as a small cd-r label operating from Athens, Greece
curated by the sound artist Tasos Stamou and currently based in
London, UK. During the past few years of its operation it has
presented works of various emerging avant-garde musicians through
its editions and organized events, also increasingly gaining the
attention of rather established creators in the field of exploratory
music, who have joined the team with enthusiasm. It has eventually
expanded its editions into broader fields of sonic interest and new
music formats (CD and LP).
