Indie pix web spins disc deal

First album to bow Feb. 9

The Independent Film Channel has pacted with 1m1 Trax/Hybrid Recordings to create “IFC — In Your Ear, Vol. One,” the first in a series of six albums featuring music from films airing on the highly respected cable channel.

The discs will be designed to facilitate the discovery of new musical talent as well as tap music from some of the industry’s most influential artists. The first album bows Feb. 9.

In some cases, the pact will provide the music its first airings, as many of the films represented in the compilation do not have accompanying soundtrack albums.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Independent Film Channel, since the IFC has established itself as the preeminent programmer of breakthrough independent films,” said Alex Steyermark, the exec producer of the discs.

The first album boasts tracks from artists as diverse as Morphine, Victoria Williams, Sam Phillips, The Pogues and Tom Waits.

Discs will be marketed and promoted by Hybrid Recordings through its unique relationship with Sire Records, and distributed by ADA, the Warner Music Group co-owned outlet.

The first set of pics linked to the disc will be the Hal Hartley film “Trust,” Gus Van Sant’s “My Own Private Idaho” and the Lisa Krueger film “Manny and Lo,” among others.

The IFC is the first channel dedicated to independent film, presented 24 hours a day, uncut and commercial free to 23 million homes.
