Setola di Maiale is a radical label of independent musicians, improvisers and composers. It was set up in January 1993 by musicians Stefano Giust and, in the early, Paolo De Piaggi, with the intent to highlight creative music. Setola di Maiale is founded on the direct participation and peculiar creativity of all musicians involved in its music productions. The catalogue offers official works of soloists and groups, in the fields of so-called avant-garde or experimental music, such as free improvisation, free jazz, electroacoustic, modern composition, acousmatic, electronic music. Contemporary music in its wider form of expression. Setola di Maiale is neither a commercial label nor an association: is rather a laboratory/archives that operates within a free and creative environment. DIY attitude is inevitably the only way for certain type of music to exist, in a market that either is clearly not there, or is stereotyped.
