Mystery & Wonder is a small label started in 2017. It is run by Elizabeth Millar and Craig Pedersen.
Many of our releases focus on sound art, improvisation and compositional works that give attention to the musical possibilities inherent in combining or superimposing closely amplified elements with acoustic elements. We are interested in work that takes care with sound and timbre, structure and form, is close, direct and in high-definition. But most off all, we are interested in work that defies our understanding of all this and moves us in ways we don’t expect, work that stands on its own.
We are lovers of the album as physical object. We custom cut the majority of our sleeves with high-quality paper using an industrial die-cut machine. Our latest releases include some combination of obi strips, hand printed covers, scores, photographs, and liner notes. With the exception of a few, releases are hand-assembled.
We also actively organize concerts in Montreal and elsewhere. You can read more about our events here.
We are grateful for the help of friends who have supported us and helped shape our work for the better: Mark Molnar, Bennett Bedoukian, Anne-F Jacques, Kiva Stimac, Suoni Per Il Popolo, The “Ritz” P.D.B, Thierry Amar, Laura Kavanaugh and Ian Birse, and many, many others.
