Econore in a small independent music label that also publishes a magazine. One of the most noteworthy aspects of the label is that it is a non-profit label. Though they are small, they are steadily gaining notoriety in the music world.
A non-profit music label like Econore will never make much money, but because this label is non-profit it means that it has the ability to change the face of music forever. A non-profit music label will only use as much resources on the bands it signs as the bands make. Essentially, the label is only there to manage the assets of the bands it signs but it does nothing more. This means that it exists in order to make the artistic visions of the artists a reality.
Many other labels have very nice contracts with the bands they sign, sometimes even nicer than Econore. Non-profits, unless backed by a wealthy person, have little capability to forward money to a band for recording or do anything else in that vein and in that sense, a major label may be better. But the difference is, a major label, being interested in profit, will threaten to void a contract if a band does not do well. With Econore, if a band puts out a bad album, they just regroup and try again until they get it right. The Econore website says that they are dedicated to free spirited music, ambient, noise, electronic, and other sound experiments. This is something that most labels cannot rightly admit to being open to. As long as they allow their artists to experiment, Econore’s influence has the possibility of being endlessly influential.
