House of POGUS

Pogus Productions features releases of Electronic, Electro-Acoustic, and Experimental music. Uncompromising, non-commercial, and definitely not for everyone (unfortunately), these releases are geared towards discerning listeners.

New Releases:  Pogus is proud to release two new CDs.  12 Color Sonnets  by Aliona Yurtsevich - a digital only release a Pogus first - a multimedia work based on twelve original poems by Aliona Yurtsevich.  And Phonosensitivity (Sound Poems 1979-1987) by Enzo Minarelli consists of 10 sound poems produced by noted Italian sound poet, scholar, and sound poetry archivist Enzo Minarelli between 1979 and 1987, and never before released. 
ANTS Records presents the new issue in its BOX series (the series of unique collectible pieces specifically created by artists for ANTS) If, Bwana/Al Margolis, LISTEN (HEAR) LOOK (SEE)
BX05, Limited and Numbered Edition of 50 / $40,00 Check it out, Dan says it's cool!

And just a short note on the new style packaging. As the cd business continues to fall apart, in an effort to contain costs in the face of seriously declining sales, the brochure style booklets allow Pogus some much needed flexibility: both financially and in inventory maintenance.

Pogus thanks any and all who continue to support us.

Sound American
has recently posted Issue #7, The Deep Listening Issue, nice Q & A and even has a Pogus mixtape.

We are also trying something new here as well. This release can be listened to (mp3 version) on Soundcloud- So if you want to give a listen, go ahead.

And of course I would be remiss not to invite you to listen to some If, Bwana things: not on Pogus..but what the hell. These are works from 2010 and 2012 in Topolo, Italy:
