More than a record label, VIC NIC is a circulatory device for sonic, visual and written artworks. Our mission is to stimulate experimentation and co-creation by facilitating the research, production and diffusion of unique world views.

What we do

Who we are

Why we do it

Our crew of ambidextrous misfits lives and works at the Aveiro Arts House, a creative ecosystem based in Aveiro, Portugal, which combines an arts centre, a guesthouse and an arts residency.

We found ourselves dreaming of a distribution device that could amplify the processes and results of our projects in fields like cultural programming, participatory arts, international cooperation and conservation of experimental heritage,  This is it.

We are deeply and helplessly in love with music & sound, and feel happiest at the crossroads between sound art and genreless, exploratory music.

Besides a few compilations resulting from ongoing arts projects, we are releasing content from artists whose work we feel strongly about and pushing forward the debut works of exciting new projects.

How it looks like

What’s next

On the backroads of DIY culture, we will keep pushing this safe harbour for the wild at heart towards the creation of possible shared futures by openly facilitating the flight plans of time travel artifacts. We hope you join us.
