Learn more about the Kohlenstoff collective

The creation of Kohlenstoff stems from a necessity: to give structure and a name to a scene developed by a new generation of composers in contemporary and electroacoustic music. Serving as a platform to promote and disseminate the work of its artists, it also encourages the emergence of a dynamic scene that reflects the uniqueness of their approaches.

Kohlenstoff operates in two aspects: the collective and the record label.

Established in 2013, the collective provides a platform where its members engage in a privileged dialogue through concerts, events, and collective creations. Like its founding members from diverse backgrounds, the collective explores various musical currents – acousmatic, experimental, mixed, ambient, minimal – and welcomes other practices such as video, performance, installation, and audio art. Kohlenstoff is constantly searching for new talents and aims to give a voice to artists with unique approaches, outside mainstream trends.

In September 2013, the Kohlenstoff Records label officially came into being during an event at the SKOL Center for Contemporary Arts in Montreal. This event, through its aesthetic eclecticism, embodies the mission and values driving the efforts of the label and the collective: establishing a dialogue and meeting point between artists from different creative backgrounds in new music.
