Long Arms Records was founded by Sergey Kuryokhin (1954-1996) and Nick Dmitriev (1955-2004) in Spring 1996. Our idea is to distribute and to promote in various ways different kinds of new and old marginal, forgotten, unknown or unidentified music. This includes free improvisation, new composed music, noise scene, electroacoustic, ars acustica, creative cross-cultural projects, authentic folklore, traditional non-european music, etc. All these projects are connected in varying degrees with Russia, Russian music or Russian musicians.
Long Arms Records is focused on the following areas:
The executive producer of Long Arms Records is Lyudmila Dmitrieva.
