PAN is a multi-disciplinary record label and platform for artists. Founded by Bill Kouligas, it has been building a network of international artists with an emphasis on adaptation to the rapidly changing cultural and material conditions of contemporary musicians and sound artists today.
Since 2008, through a continuous stream of releases and events, PAN has evolved year by year to reflect the state of sound production and sound-based art practices, and their constant redefinition of experimentation.
The curatorial habits of the label are wide-ranging, from commissioning releases from established pioneers like Rashad Becker, Trevor Wishart and Florian Hecker, to giving a platform to emerging talents such as Pan Daijing, M.E.S.H. and Yves Tumor. PAN has also represented artists such as 70s avant-garde Bigaku school collective Marginal Consort to conceptual artists James Hoff and Mark Leckey.
Inherent to the way the label is structured is a conversation between artists, working at the forefront of their field; from noise to cross-disciplinary practices between visual media, sound and technology. Based in Berlin, with roots in London and Athens, PAN taps into and reflects the multi-national and innovative nature of the city’s unique music scene, nurturing and connecting its talent and experiments to a wider international scene.
PAN releases high quality, thoughtfully-designed physical editions of recordings and visual media, digital works in a wide range of formats, and organizes events and showcases. Recent partners include PS1 (NYC), Insitute for Contemporary Art (London) and Berghain (Berlin).
