And THIS is why I like this label. All their releases are very special and unique because of the medium that carries them, some even so special that they are unplayable in some media players. But they don't make unique stuff just to make unique stuff, no, they do it right and make true art pieces. Look at this for example. Deep Magic and Auris Apothecary both understand to the fullest that making a release that involves not only sound, but also smell, greatly increases the music experience. It's unique (as far as I know) but done fully right. And in my opinion, that last sentence is the definition of pure art. But this is just an example of the masterpieces of this label: all releases on Auris Apothecary seem to involve and pleasure at least two senses in ways that require out-of-the-box thinking. This leads to a great experience, an experience rarely found on other labels. And that's why true art, art done really right, is very rare.
