Zyla (meta)label launch
A night of experimental music, short films, and contemporary art to launch Zyla, a new multidisciplinary (meta)label.
Zyla is part of a global network of metalabels: organisations expanding the record label concept to encompass multiple modes of creativity and methods of release.
Founded and curated by composer/guitarist/producer Alex Roth, Zyla presents projects that combine music, visual art, literature, live performance and digital experiences. Releases take myriad forms across both existing platforms and emerging spaces such as web3 and the metaverse. Zyla’s curatorial practice manifests as Scenes: rosters of artists collaborating across disciplines to form ad hoc collectives.
Tonight Zyla launches Scene 1 with the release of the label’s first two EPs and an array of interconnected works including live performance, two short films, a suite of NFT drops, and an exhibition of drawings.
