ARC Music was a rebranding of Eulenspiegel
using the same logo and Labelcode: LC 5111 / LC 05111 (in fact the company LC registration has remained under the Eulenspiegel name at the GVL). ARC Music started in Germany in 1983, then expanded internationally with bases in Germany, UK and USA. The reason for the name change was twofold, 1. Eulenspiegel was established promoting local acts in the rock, pop and folk fields and also signed some international prog and fusion artists like Tribute and Pierre Moerlen's Gong, whereas ARC Music specialized in traditional, world and ethnic musics, including new-age and other light instrumental music. 2. ARC Music saw a change of ethic when the owners became Scientologists. The acronym ARC stands for Scientology's "ARC Triangle": Affinity, Reality and Communication.
Company director/founder: Horst Tubbesing
Late 2017 saw the launch of the Bendigedig
label, a new and unique cooperation between ARC Music and Theatr Mwldan
(Wales) in which the artist really takes the lead. Fully supported by ARC Music and Mwldan, bendigedig artists enjoy the benefits of record label, publishing, management and touring, in an equal partnership, and being key in the decision-making process.
Important: Do not use the Eulenspiegel Label name on ARC Music releases, although the same logo appears (unless the name Eulenspiegel actually appears on the release).
