With Odradek, the artist retains many rights traditionally withheld by record companies, and their artistic freedom is greatly respected. Whenever possible, our recordings are released under a Creative Commons “Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-ND 4.0)” license, acknowledging our listeners’ rights to freely and fairly enjoy our discs, while recognizing that efforts to curb bad behavior on their part are generally futile and counterproductive. Instead of treating listeners as a market, and focusing our efforts on seeking marginally higher profits, we want to forge a more human and personal bond between our artists and their public, in hopes that in offering our music liberally, we will not only enjoy their economic support, but actually grow our audiences, and nourish the classical landscape, increasing its viability for the next generation.
By law, recordings featuring works that are still under copyright protection are ineligible for this means of distribution, and thus you will see traditional “© all rights reserved” with our discs featuring more modern music. Look for this symbol to know if the music you are interested in is offered through a CC license:
