Who are we? Altered State Records is a small independent record label established in the summer of 1999 by Linda Vigil and Greg Grant.
What do we do? We are a music label that promotes experimental sound waves, that provides inspiration and support to those who are willing to put themselves on-the-line to expand and affect change. We pride ourselves in being what we can be in this current moment of uncertain, unstable and unexplainable situation of life.
Why do we do it? To abandon the superficial elements of the commercial music business. To re-establish the simplicity of music. To have fun - because there is so much more out there than imaginable. To be able to promote music and reach out to things with an explorative consciousness just fills us with an unbelievable joy.
Our Beliefs. We believe that music is about the music, not about all the other concerns that are currently eating away it. We believe in freedom and expression, that there are no limits to the creative realm.
Our Goal? To keep things simple and honest, to bring real music back into the mainstream by taking over the airwaves with music that is made for music's sake, not for mass profit. We want to help those who are zombitized with some corporation's idea of what popular music is and bring them back around to music that is other than "pretty people singing to prearranged-musical-like sequences".
