About

Standard Music Library was formed as a collaboration between London Weekend Television (ITV) and Bucks Music Group in 1968. Initially, and fittingly, it released 68 albums on vinyl, the last being Brian Eno’s Textures album, before it moved into the digital age with rise of the CD. Times change yet again and forthcoming albums are almost exclusively online as MP3s and WAVs with just short runs of CDs for the people who prefer them. Pleasantly adventurous, Standard has a history of offering pioneering composers a home, whether it be the National Balkan Ensemble, Brian Eno or Delia Derbyshire and we try to maintain this tradition to this day by looking for composers willing to bring something you may not have heard before.
