Nachtstück Records is a record label, starting its activity in beginning of 2014, focused on releasing primarily Free Improvised Music, Contemporary Instrumental Music, Electroacoustic Music, and Post DJ-Scene oriented genres. Music is generally released using creative commons licenses for free download with the eligible possibility for contributions, from which 90% will be given to NGOs, and 10% of the money will be divided among people involved with the label in case the selling's go higher than a 3000€ - otherwise we donate all the incoming money directly into these institutions. we have donated most of the label's income to unicef children of syria. The music has released so far music of Karlheinz Essl, John Dikeman, Gregory Taylor, Colectivo Abaetetuba, Wilbert de Joode and Gonçalo Almeida (among some of the most relevant artists). We plan to collect all our releases at some point and making physical products using flash media drives, which can be shipped and sold for a symbolic price.

Dick Raaymakers (Raaijmakers) (Maastricht, 1 September 1930–4 september 2013) was a Dutch composer, theater maker and theorist. He is known as a pioneer in the field of electronic music and tape music but he has also realized numerous music theater pieces and has published many theoretical essays.
Raaymakers studied the piano at the Royal Conservatoire (The Hague). From 1954 to 1960 he worked in the field of electro-acoustic research at Royal Philips Electronics Ltd. in Eindhoven. There, using the alias Kid Baltan, he and Tom Dissevelt, under the name Electrosoniks produced works of popular music by electronic means (which turned out to be the first attempts of their kind in the world). From 1960 to 1962 he then worked at the University of Utrecht as a scientific staff member. From 1963 to 1966, together with Jan Boerman, he worked in his own studio for electronic music in the Hague. Then, from 1966 until his retirement in 1995, he worked as a teacher of Electronic and Contemporary Music at the Royal Conservatoire (The Hague) and since 1991 also as a teacher of Music Theater at the Image and Sound Interfaculty, at the same conservatory.
