Crónica is a label based in Porto, Portugal. It is an artist-run labour of love started in 2003 as an outlet for local artists, and that grew to become an imprint dedicated to electronic, computational, and experimental musics, to the sound arts and to their intertwining with other media and artistic practices. Crónica’s publishing strategy embraces the post-digital domain, setting its sights on high quality standards rather than on strictly commercial criteria.

Besides music & artefacts, Crónica produced Futurónica, a biweekly show on Rádio Zero and Rádio Manobras that ran for 200 episodes from 2009 to 2017, and Crónicaster, a podcast that ran for 122 episodes from 2005 to 2016.

(…) Crónica re-affirms its reputation as a label of integrity that regularly offers free-to-download recordings to its listeners and is more than a little deserving of whatever support the electronic music listening community can provide. Textura
