Petrichor Records is an independent record label specializing in contemporary classical music by living composers. It was founded by Amin Sharifi (composer) and Kelariz Keshavarz (flutist) in the United States in 2017. While the first three releases are the music of Iranian musicians, Petrichor Records is committed to giving release and performance opportunities to the new works of living composers from around the globe, regardless of their nationality. Our mission has two stages:
1- Find new voices in the field of contemporary music and dedicate the required time and effort to the emerging artists to realize their artistic projects. If you are an emerging artist (even if not a composer) and you have an artistic project idea in your mind, go ahead and contact us!
2- Work closely with the established artists of contemporary music field from different countries to propose new projects in the form of concerts, albums, sound installations, conceptual performances, etc.
Petrichor is the scent of rain on dry earth, or the scent of dust after rain. The word is constructed from Greek, petros, meaning 'stone' + ichor, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology. It is defined as "the distinctive scent which accompanies the first rain after a long warm dry spell.
