NovAntiqua Records

NovAntiqua is a record and video production label born in 2010 and composed by a diverse group of musicians. NovAntiqua’s artists get together in complete freedom under the sole common denominator of being asymmetrical, decentralized and peripheral with respect to the mainstream and, by nature, they tend to cultural meandering. NovAntiqua is a small planet with a centerless orbit that is irregular and constantly inconstant. It is a musical world with many centers of gravity and no satellite.

Name Your Own Price!

NovAntiqua Records is the first music label that abolish the prices on its web shop. The listener decides how much and if he wants to pay that music. He receives first the CDs or DVDs for free at home, later he will be free to pay more or less or... absolutely not!
- How important is for you the music that you received from us?
- How important is that music for the musicians and for our music label?
- How many people is working on a cd? The musicians, the artistic director, the sound engineer, the illustrator, the text writer and so on… How many time, energy, creativity and care they spent to produce that music?
You can answer from yourself to these and other questions: give a value! We overcome the capitalistic idea of a price decided through demand and supply. We are all responsible of the value that we give to the things that we choice in our lives. The “market” doesn’t decide but the human being does it: totally free and without any kind of constraint.
