Audio Visuals Atmosphere - Record Label Logo

Audio. Visuals. Atmosphere. (AVA) is one of these labels that can really get you hooked if you have a heart for cassette tapes, collecting obscure music, are into contemporary visual arts or I guess all three of them. The label was founded in 2015 and ran by Niels Geybels a young audio-visual artist hailing from Belgium and mostly known in the experimental scene for his work under his own name, also as Sequences and False Moniker. The imprint is dedicated to publishing music in the vast fields of ambient, noise, experimental, field recordings and electro-acoustic music. – DIY Conspiracy

Last year we interviewed AVA and its founder Niels as part of our Indie Label Roundtable series. Niels has returned the favor by compiling this neat little mix of all things 2019 for us – featuring material that came out on AVA + tracks culled from releases by fellow sonic travelers like Park70 and Never Anything.
