Pinna Records, based in San Francisco, California, is a new label that releases music by contemporary composers. We believe, with Kyle Gann, that "brand-new music can sometimes be joyous, clear, seductive, ingratiating, and/or simple, and still well-worth listening to and exploring."
The pinna is the visible part of the ear. It acts as a funnel, amplifying and directing sound to the auditory canal. Like a fingerprint, it is unique to the individual; similarly, our ears, rather than any specific agenda, guide our decisions about what to record and release.
