The Strasbourg, France based noise label Audiotrauma will close its doors. The label has been active for 20 years and says that its closure is due to the new economic model of distribution “(which) is only good for the majors and and the disposable and bankable musicians.”

The French associative label from Strasbourg was created in January 2002 by Syco Trauma, and was dedicated to the creation and the diffusion of experimental electronic projects in music (mainly electro and industrial) and in visual arts.

At the moment the label is cleaning its stocks before closing its doors forever.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
