Distinctly Odd Records is an eccentric classical music recording label established by Canadian composer Rufus Lin
The aim is to record and distribute fresh interpretations of a wide range of classical music by Japanese and Korean musicians still relatively unknown in the English speaking world.
The artists are professional musicians who generally perform and record in their own countries, so recordings under the Distinctly Odd label are both an excellent way for English speakers to get to know these fine musicians, as well as for the artists to begin making their mark internationally.
Distinctly Odd Records는 특별한 클래식 음반 레이블로, 캐나다 작곡가 Rufus Lin이 설립했습니다. Distinctly Odd Records의 목표는 영어권 세계에 비교적 덜 알려진 일본과 한국 음악가들이 다양한 클래식 음악을 신선하게 해석한 곡을 녹음 및 배포하는 것입니다. 이러한 프로 음악가들은 보통 자국에서 공연하고 음반을 제작하기 때문에, Distinctly Odd 레이블에서 음반을 제작하는 것은 영어권 소비자가 이처럼 훌륭한 음악가들을 만나보는 좋은 기회이기도 하고, 이 아티스트들이 국제적인 명성을 쌓기 시작하는 계기가 되기도 합니다.
