MSG is described as “an experimental music label … not only focussing on the aesthetic of music, but prioritising the concept of the release.”

For the inaugural release, Suzuki and creative studio Counterpoint reimagined Raymond Scott’s Electronium – an early combined electronic synthesizer and generative music machine – using modern technology.

The result is a collection of soothing tunes imbued with the magic of early electronic experimentation.

All proceeds from Scott’s Dream – Music From A Reimagined Digital Electronium will be donated to COVID-19 relief funds.
