Sub Rosa (label)


Sub Rosa (label)

Sub Rosa is a record label based in Brussels. The label was established at the end of the ‘80s, and expanded its catalogue in the mid-‘90s through the release of electronic music.

Since 2001, the label has been releasing Guy Marc Hinant's large-scale "Anthology of Noise and Electronic Music". Sub Rosa releases archival material related to twentieth-century avant-garde figures, such as Marcel Duchamp, William Burroughs, James Joyce, and Kurt Schwitters. They have also released material from a number of important electronic music composers (Luc Ferrari, Henri Pousseur, Tod Dockstader, Nam June Paik...), and traditional music from around the world (an anthology of Inuit work, Master Musicians of Joujouka, cantor Ben Baruch, Tibetan and Bhutanese music recorded by John Levy, etc.).

Directed by Guy Marc Hinant and Frédéric Walheer, Sub Rosa has released over 250 titles.

Since 2000, Guy Marc Hinant and Dominique Lohlé have also run a film production outfit, OME (for Observatoire des musiques électroniques, or Electronic Music Observatory). OME plans to produce documentaries on avant-garde music since World War II.

The record label takes its name from the Latin expression sub rosa, literally translating as "under the rose" and figuratively meaning something furtive or undercover.
