For my graduate project this year, I set up a professional record label to release my own music. The label as a brand, represents live performance in electronic music. The project development will continue post-academia. The six track EP was released on all major streaming platforms, while a website was also developed for the project in-house. A podcast series was initiated to develop a live performance community in Ireland, only one was recorded unfortunately due to Covid-19. A launch event was due to take place in May, which was also postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The resulting material for the project however, provides the opportunity for further professional development – which was the primary goal of the project when originally pitched.
