NATIONAL SAWDUST TRACKS
National Sawdust Tracks, formerly VIA Records, is the non-profit in-house record label and recording studio of National Sawdust. The label is helmed by Jeffrey Zeigler, who was the cellist of the internationally renowned Kronos Quartet for eight seasons. In collaboration with its sister production organization VisionIntoArt, National Sawdust Tracks releases content that reinterprets genre, facilitates provocative collaboration, and encourages new ways of listening. With an oeuvre ranging from electronics to contemporary opera, the label is a platform for artists with profound understanding of their craft to experiment and stretch the limitations of how that craft is practiced.
