New Contemporary Classical Label, Cognitive Shift Recordings launches

23 Mar 2016

Today sees the launch of new Contemporary Classical label, Cognitive Shift Recordings. Born out of a collaboration between One Little Indian Records, home to artists including Björk & Olga Bell and Manners McDade Music Publishing, home to artists such as Nils Frahm and Throwing Snow, Cognitive Shift Recordings creates a new home for contemporary classical music that has influences and instrumentation within the genre and beyond.

Cognitive Shift Recordings’ debut release (due in September) will Overview Effect, the first album from composer Roger Goula, an album that encapsulates the ethos of the new label, bridging the gap between modern classical and electronic music, creating a cohesive work that is both entirely of the moment yet timeless.

A first track, ‚ÄėAwe‚Äô from that record is made available today via SoundCloud and will be followed next week by the Phaeleh remix. [A limited 4 track 12‚ÄĚ will be released on the 1st July]

“Overview Effect is a perfect primer for the future sound of Cognitive Shift and sets a high¬†standard¬†for our¬†subsequent¬†releases to match.” Bob McDade, founder of Cognitive Shift Recordings.

‚ÄėOverview Effect‚Äô is a psychological phenomenon experienced by astronauts when viewing Earth from a distance, allowing them to see the entire planet surrounded by the endless¬†black void of space. This can cause a cognitive shift in the minds of the astronauts, giving them a completely new perspective on life, Earth and humanity. Around this concept, the album and label formed, with the aim of recreating this psychological shift through the power of sound and music.

Manners McDade is a London-based music publisher, specialising in new classical and electronic music, celebrating its 10th year in 2016. Their roster of artists includes Nils Frahm, Poppy Ackroyd, Federico Albanese, Florestano, and Fabric’s Houndstooth Catalogue (including Snow Ghosts, Special Request, Akkord).
