Since our first release in 1999, Sounds Are Active has become a home for jazz, improvisational, ambient, experimental, folk, hip-hop and electronic artists alike. Recent releases from Nels Cline, G.E. Stinson, I Heart Lung,, Aaron Roche, Rare Grooves with Mike Watt, Anthony Shadduck Quartet, The Weird Weeds, Soul-Junk, and DENEIR place Sounds Are Active at the vanguard of progressive music.

Sounds Are Active is proud to have worked with such gifted visual artists as Jonathan Dueck, Tim McMullen, Paul Goode, Jason Munn, Seth Ferris, Matias Coduri, Grady McFerrin and Chuck Anderson (no pattern). We have also been honored to collaborate on releases with Asthmatic Kitty, Sounds Familyre , Pete Records and Joyful Noise.
