The Moron Laboratories is a micro-label and media collective formed at the end of the 20th century by a handful of like-minded experimentalists. Initially based in Austin, its true home has always been the vast sea of digital information. We release a wide range of experimental genres, as well as the strange and unique discoveries made during our oneironautic expeditions.
We recognize that musick, as information, should be free. We also recognize that musicians should be paid for their creative contributions to society. So, we offer all of our musick as digital downloads on a pay-what-you-want model (i.e., completely free) and hand-craft extremely limited numbers on a wide variety of formats. Releases have included 8-cm CDs, 3.5″ floppy disks, mp3 players, 1/2″ tape, as well as more traditional media. Whenever possible, we collaborate with like-minded artists and creators on packaging, art, design, instrument creation, software.
We welcome submissions, but you have to find us first. Seriously, we’re all hermits.
