Corvo Records is an ebony alchemist transforming what others discard, misusing conventions for the brave ears among us.
— Todd B. Gruel (2018) —
Corvo Record is a label for sound art and contemporary music, founded 2010 in Berlin by Wendelin Büchler. We focus on the production of primarily vinyl records and art books. Each of the label’s release, is ambitiously produced with the highest possible sound quality and great care for both the visual and haptical aspect. The records come as 180g vinyls, picture discs or coloured vinyl in gatefold sleeves, with silkscreen prints, heavy cardboard packaging and hand-made inlays. All of them are limited and hand-numbered. This particular cover design and packaging work gives our releases an object-like character.
Whereas Corvo Records’ sublabel Global Pop First Wave (curated by Holger Lund) is releasing unexpected sounds with a special focus on Turkish rock, psychedelic, and beat music from the 1960s and 1970s, mixing Western and Eastern elements. GPFW is curiously remapping the knowledge of pop music since 2013.
