Pax Label Lore

Brief History

Pax Recordings was founded in 1997, by Northern Californians Jennifer Jones and composer/guitarist Ernesto Diaz-Infante, with the ambition to explore the boundaries of music. Pax Recordings was initially based in Pacific Grove (Monterey Bay Area) and relocated to San Francisco in 2000. Pax Recordings aesthetic is a wide range of modern music, including: experimental, improvised, noise, electronic, free jazz, 21st century composition, and avant rock, with an emphasis on improvisation and unclassifiable music.

Statement of Intent

Pax Recordings record label is dedicated to the documentation, preservation, and contagion of music from the margins of our culture and psyches-often improvised and experimental . Composer/guitarist Ernesto Diaz-Infante, and filmmaker/musician Marjorie Sturm co-conspire and run Pax Recordings. Their most significant release is a compilation CD of twenty-six artists titled Voices In the Wilderness: Dissenting Soundscapes and Songs of GW's America.
