head­phon­ica is a con­fus­ing net­la­bel releas­ing free music­al things.

it is home to some unusu­al musi­cians, strange pro­jects, and odd sound exper­i­ments and oth­er. in terms of genres, head­phon­ica is all over the board with elec­tron­ica, tapemusic, jazz, avant garde, folk, exper­i­ment­al, noise, hip hop, and pop, among oth­ers.

head­phon­ica star­ted in 2006 as a pro­ject with a rather aca­dem­ic approach to lofi-sounds, wich ought to be recor­ded via head­phones. after pub­lish­ing this com­pil­a­tion called head­phon­ica, the pro­ject star­ted to grow fur­ther, devel­op­ing as a netlabel.the explor­at­ive align­ment can still be heard in the largest share of the net­la­bels releases, but the label also had intense rela­tion­ship to pop music since the early days. this seem­ing dicho­tomy resolves in the per­spect­ive of the artists: it’s about acclaim­ing the already developed on the one hand and yearn­ing for music­al free­dom on the oth­er.
