Drum Machine Editions is an independent publisher and print shop in Asheville, NC, USA. Since 2018, we've been releasing limited edition artists' books, prints, tapes, and objects. Publisher/Master Printer Erik Pedersen takes a slow, project-based approach, working closely with each artist to translate their work to the printed page. To-date, DME has published a diverse range of projects spanning analog animation, experimental music, and ekphrastic poetry books.
We're working hard to establish an equitable and transparent publishing model that empowers artists to negotiate with us every step of the way. From material costs and division of labor to artist copies, prices, rights, and percentage splits: art is labor and we want to talk about it.
