an internet radio station for live musicians and composers in New York City





What is extreme NY?

We're a cooperative of live musicians and composers.

We are the negative image of a record label, an antilabel. Our goal is to render the standard record company model obsolete by allowing musicians the ability to disseminate and sell their own material themselves.

Internet radio? How does that work?

Through an open system called mp3 which lets you broadcast music over the Internet.
You can get an mp3 player for free and listen to hundreds of thousands of pieces of music that people have uploaded to the Internet. You can get all sorts of players and much more information from

While mp3 works amazingly well, we are still at the dawn of the internet age. Though we have made every effort to prepare our material so that it can be played by everyone on any computer, you will probably hear strange artefacts and experience the occasional drop-out. Think of yourself as listening to a crystal radio at the turn of the last century...
