Some Place Else

About

Some Place Else is an independent record label and a production unit for experimental audiovisual art.

Some Place Else deals in various forms of experimental electronic music, prefering to focus on depth and originality. Our rather eclectic ways have sometimes been found hard to market, therefore our products are only found via a selected handful of dealers worldwide. In the aftermath of the digital revolution we naturally focus even more on direct communication from the artists to the audience.

Most of our resources are currently being invested in the process of research, creation and production, products thereof to be presented on live events and new releases. The latter will most probably appear in small editions of personal nature, possibly with hand-finished artwork and specially designed packaging, whatever is required in each particular case. Our focus is still in the physical product.

Some Place Else is not looking for new artists. Rather, our artists are interested in creative collaborations with other artists and new acquaintances; suggestions for collaborations of any kind are the most welcome.

Brief history

Niko Skorpio founded an underground record label called Demonosound in 1993. Demonosound released a rather eclectic selection of noise, goth metal, drone and dark ambient music, the most out-there titles were issued on PowerWave Unlimited sublabel.

In 1997, it was time for renewal, to follow our evolving interests. Some Place Else was established as a new label. Demonosound and PowerWave Unlimited were to remain as sublabels or imprints, but eventually they became obsolete and faded to history (trainspotters can yet find the names & logos on the late 1990’s releases).

From 2004 to 2007 we held a semi-public workspace and record shop in the city center of Turku. There we also organised small concerts for both local and international artists, often with a specific theme for each evening.

In 2007 we moved our operations away from the city to the quiet Finnish countryside, to minimize distractions and interference, in order to focus on the core activities of research, development and production.
