World of Objects (5049-004)
Recorded live in concert in the fall of 2013, "World of Objects" is an intense and confounding document of 21st century improvised music. Featuring Evan Parker, a singular musician whose approach to music and the saxophone has influenced several generations of improvisers, in trio with trumpet great Nate Wooley and clarinetist Jeremiah Cymerman, "World of Objects" is both a concert document and an intricate journey through the digital post-production of Jeremiah Cymerman. Over the course of three improvisations and fifity minutes of music, Parker, Wooley & Cymerman push themselves to new levels of instrumental prowess and spontaneous compositional thinking that 5049 is proud beyond words to present.

Pale Horse (5049-003)
For a musician who has made name for himself carving out dense blocks of meticulously detailed electroacoustic music, composer and clarinetist Jeremiah Cymerman takes yet another turn with "Pale Horse", his new trio recording featuring cellist Christopher Hoffman and drummer Brian Chase. Recorded in August 2013, the music uses sparse acoustic sounds that unfold with pain-staking patience and restraint, splitting the focus equally between instrumental precision and stark silence. At times pristine and shimmering and at times remarkably unsettling, "Pale Horse" is a dynamic new cd of dark ambient music that rewards repeated and detailed listening.
Sky Burial (5049-002) CD
Released March 19th, 2013 “Sky Burial” is the first recording of composer Jeremiah Cymerman’s Amplified Quartet featuring trumpeters Nate Wooley & Peter Evans and saxophonist Matt Bauder. Recorded during a three day residency at Brooklyn’s Roulette in the summer of 2012 the album is the second release on Cymerman’s label 5049 Records and stands as a major new contribution to traditions of electroacoustic music and free improvisation. Over the course of five tracks and 55 minutes the quartet pushes the boundaries of their instruments to soaring new heights of virtuosity and insanity, all of which is intensified by the hyper cut-up techniques of Cymerman's trademark post-production and editing. As individuals Cymerman, Wooley, Bauder and Evans having been taking their instrumental language to the farthest reaches of creativity and “Sky Burial” is a powerful new document that has to be heard to be believed.
Purification/Dissolution (5049-001) CD
Released August 21st, 2012 Purification/Dissolution” is the fifth studio album by New York City composer/clarinetist Jeremiah Cymerman and his first solo album since 2008’s “In Memory of the Labyrinth System”. Self-released on his own new limited edition imprint 5049 Records and recorded entirely in his apartment during the first half of 2012 “Purification/Dissolution” marks a new direction of self-reliance, fierce independence and refined DIY aesthetics in Cymerman’s work. Originally conceived of as a set of live, one-take recordings of clarinet and amplifier improvisations the album was recorded over the course of six months, during which time it took many new transformations and directions. Featuring rich & detailed production and his trademark hyper editing techniques, the focal point of the album is Cymerman’s live clarinet improvisations coupled with electronics and amplifier. Sprinkling each piece with discrete elements of feedback and tasteful sections of synth & electronics, each piece unfolds at a more organic pace than much of Cymerman’s previous work and presents a much more accurate representation of his live solo concerts.
