Since 2008, multi-disciplinary label PAN has been building a network of international artists with an emphasis on adaption to the rapidly changing cultural and material conditions of contemporary musicians and sound artists today. Through a constant stream of releases and events, PAN has evolved year by year to reflect the state of sound production and sound-based art practices. The curatorial habits of the label are wide-ranging, from commissioning releases from established pioneers like Rashad Becker, Trevor Wishart and Florian Hecker, to giving a platform to emerging talents such as M.E.S.H., Helm and Objekt. PAN has also represented artists such as 70s avant-garde Bigaku school collective Marginal Consort to conceptual artists James Hoff and Mark Leckey. Inherent to the way the label is structured is a conversation between artists working at the forefront of their field, with an emphasis on their diverse practices, backgrounds, locations and social conditions.

With its base in Berlin, PAN attempts to tap into and reflect the multi-national and innovative nature of the unique music scene here, nurturing and connecting these experiments to a wider international scene through releasing high quality, thoughtfully-designed physical editions of recordings, and organizing musical showcases in Berlin and abroad.
