Ideologic Organ, Recollection GRM and Portraits GRM will now operate under the supervision of French label Shelter Press

Three labels that made up part of the Editions Mego family are to continue, following the death of Editions Mego founder Peter Rehberg in July.

An announcement shared today (September 3) by INA-GRM, the Parisian electro-acoustic research institute with whom Rehberg often collaborated, has revealed that Stephen O'Malley's Ideologic Organ imprint, as well as the Recollection GRM and Portraits GRM sub-labels, will continue to release music. The main Editions Mego label has, however, been concluded following Rehberg's passing.

"While it was not conceivable to continue Editions Mego without Peter Rehberg, the labels created in collaboration with Stephen O'Malley (IOM) and the GRM (REGRM / SPGRM) are intended to continue and perpetuate the mission undertaken with Peter," reads the statement.

The French label Shelter Press, run by Bartolomé Sanson & Félicia Atkinson, will now carry the releases from these three labels going forward. "This will be done in the spirit in which we have always collaborated and with the decisive contribution of Peter Rehberg in mind and in our hearts, without whom nothing would have been possible," INA-GRM's statement concludes.

Rehberg died unexpectedly, aged 53, following a heart attack. Editions Mego's final new release, Powell's Piano Music 1-7, was released last week, while a vinyl reissue of Oneohtrix Point Never's Returnal album, originally released by the label in 2010, is scheduled for release in December.
