More news to come, be patient…

Olof Bright was founded by Mats Gustafsson and Thomas Millroth 2000. The general idea was to create a label specialised in different kinds of improvised and modern music: avant rock, free impro but also lettrism and other experiments. Very important to us is the connection between the visual form and the content; the label is open to artistic creations of records, both vinyl and CD, but also artists´ books and alike.

Olof Bright´s new releases, Sven-Åke Johansson, MND, Berlin Symphonie, Per Svensson, Sonogram and Christine Sehnaoui Solo have have received great reviews so far.

And in the July issue of The Wire there will be reviews of Sven-Åke Johansson, OBCD 14/15, and Per Svensson, OBCD 18. Look out for that.
