You will be the producer, and we will take care of the rest. You get the satisfaction that your music is available to anyone who wants it, anywhere. You retain all earnings, that includes fees from stores where we get your music listed, and royalties go 100% to you. You pay only a $30.00 yearly fee (your IMS membership dues) so that your music will be available for streaming and download all over the world.
Current IMS members can release albums at no cost. Some options are available that cost more. What about CD's or Vinyl? No Problem! We will work with you whether you just want to sell CD's at your gigs, or whether you want to distribute CD's or Vinyl worldwide. Contact us if you have any questions or special needs.

So your project can be as simple as $23.00 if you use the link above, you'll be ready to get started. We charge $75.00 per hour for our time, so if you send us a bunch of jumbled up music and want us to make sense of it and name your songs, etc. We will send you the bill before we pull the trigger and send your music to press. Like we said before: you could do this on your own. But there are advantages to signing with a label like us. Bragging rights, association with other top musicians, saving money, and having somebody else fill out all the forms and making sure that everything is as good as we can make it.
Additional fees may apply. Sandra and Alicia own their images, but they will work with us to get you the hotest possible images. They can create custom images for $75.00/hr. We reserve the right at any time to decide what we will and will not put our name on. We have a reputation to maintain. We also can't guarantee that you will sell your music. Ultimately, you are the key to your own success.
Send email to Robby Garner at Flux Oersted ... Please do not email song files to us. Contact us first, and we will work out the best method for you to send to us.
To pay fees, please donate the amount to Institute of Mimetic Sciences, Inc. Scroll down to where it says DONATE. If you need to send a check, email us and we will be glad to work with you.
And it's tax deductible!
But then you say, "I want a record contract." That's what's different about our label. There are no contracts other than our common laws that protect individuals, consumers, and service providers like us. We provide you up front with what it will cost and what is involved. You are the head of this company. I bet you will look long and hard to find another non-profit record company.
Promotion, concerts, advertisements are beyond our scope of operations. It all starts by sending a $30.00 DONATION to Institute of Mimetic Sciences, and we will take care of you every step of the way. Your business means a lot to us, but we are a new breed of record company. You are the boss here. We'll make you happy you found us because here we are. You will have to promote yourself or hire someone to do that. We get your product to market, but it is up to you to tell people it is there.
Step by step instructions.
