Gutzeit started the BOXmedia label to release music from the growing Chicago improvised music scene as well as musicians from beyond Cook County. BOXmedia called it quits in 2004. A new label, Trust Lost, was started by Gutzeit in 2006, releasing music from such artists as Astro, Spykes, and TV Pow. Trust Lost ended in 2015. His third label was called simply Brent Gutzeit Archives (BGA, now defunct) - the catalog includes limited edition CDr releases with Brent's own albums, live recordings, collaborations, etc. Gutzeit's current label, JMY, started in 2015 and releases mostly Gutzeit-related projects.
Gutzeit has created many homemade instruments, including a 20-string upright steel bass strung with piano wire.
