HOME ＞ Company Overview
Since 1990, Mercury Inc has been working on music software distribution in Japan, not just CDs but also vinyl LPs, as well as Super-Audio CDs and other audiophile software.
When a culture from one country is introduced to another, the translator is always needed to communicate the original ideas and philosophies. Music transcends language barriers as it is the art of sound, however, if the listener has any knowledge on the culture which fostered the music, he can appreciate it more intimately and more soundly.
Concerning CDs, we deal mainly, though not exclusively, with classical music, from early music to contemporary, not to mention baroque, classical, romantic and early modern.
We add 1) a Japanese translation of the liner-notes and 2) a Japanese tag called “obi”, on which a Japanese introduction and translation of the titles and the names of the musicians are printed. In this way, the ideas behind the original production are transmitted into our culture as the CD is played, just as the artists intended when they made the album.
We distribute the following labels:
as musique Box Star Records Caro mitis Classic Records clearaudio Concerto
COORECORDS Cypres e lucevan le stelle EMC FENN MUSIC fuga libera Gramola
Groove Note INDESENS intrada Melophone Music Matters ORG Pan Classics
Pure Pleasure Ramee RICERCAR Stockfisch Records saphir Speakers Corner
