End Result Productions is a record label of primarily cassette and zine products, largely focused on hosting events
in the Philadelphia area.
Conceived 10 December 2012, the label began in Philadelphia's thriving hardcore punk scene throughout 2013 with
operations based upon a DIY-minded work ethic. Finding a similar ethos in parts of the area's underground
electronic music scenes, it quickly established itself as a label without exclusive genre focus by releasing
several tapes of synthpop and noise artists in 2014.
Throughout 2015 and onward in 2016, End Result has given careful
attention to offering a diverse catalogue of releases from artists who explore various styles of ambient,
experimental, industrial, pop and techno-based electronic music. This catalogue is made without shying away
from the founding styles of punk and post-punk, rather embracing them both in harmony through appreciating
their commonality in underground operation and the essential spirit which accompanies this.
The concept of alchemy is held in high regard as it pertains to the work of the label; specific aim is made to
pursue the final perfection of audio and visual materials. End Result Productions is overseen by The Order
Of The End Result for this reason, an Ogdoadic-inspired body which ensures that the meaning of "end
result" is embodied within each release of the label.
The Institute of Esoteric Polar Research (IOEPR) was founded December 2015 as an organization
subsidiary to End Result Productions, offering a catalogue of End Result Productions releases which give specific
study of Arctic and Antarctic topics.
In hosting events, the label currently has three themes of
1) Dark Matter: the Dark Matter series aims to blur the boundaries between techno and ambient
styles by exploring commonality in their darker aspects; to provide an environment which encourages their infusion
and collective appreciation.
2) Celestial Ascension: the Celestial
Ascension events are positioned as points in time along Earth's celestial equator, the first event taking
place on the vernal equinox 2016. They serve as celebrations for quarterly End Result Productions
3) Emerging Artists Series: the Emerging
Artists Series is concerned with showcasing up-and-coming electronic musicians. It acts as a platform for
people in the area who are new to performing, have recently moved to the Philadelphia area and seek to
perform, or reside in other areas but are new to performing in Philadelphia.
