We like to think of ourselves as “curators” of music. We actually listen to the music we produce, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
How it all started
Sometime in 2010 producer, musician, and audio engineer Eric Wayne wanted to record a piece of music by an obscure French composer. But, when fellow Green St. Mortuary Bandmate Zach Spellman told Eric of his trouble in recording a piece by an equally obscure Swedish composer, a light bulb went off and Digital Victrola was conceived.
Zach's piece was for tuba and piano, and since Zach was also the tubist for the San Francisco Opera, it seemed a natural first release for Eric’s new label.
The challenging, yet enjoyably listenable, 24 Preludes for Tuba and Piano, composed by Julius Jacobsen and preformed by Zach Spellman (tuba) and Karen Hutchinson (piano), was produced and released in the spring of 2012.
Since then Digital Victrola has mastered and released a double CD set from Jeff Sandford's Cartoon Jazz Band featuring the music of Raymond Scott and his contemporaries in small group and big band settings!
