The Sophisticated Culture Foundation is a newly formed Non Profit Organization that aims to promote excellence in artistic and creative development with an extraordinary vision. From our future home in a stunning property with an extraordinary flair, the Sophisticated Culture Foundation aims to inspire everyone who visits our campus – artists, musicians, composers, engineers, writers, directors and thinkers – to unleash their creative potential.
As a non-profit organization, we push our work with our own academy, as a music publisher, record label, recording studio, practice stage, artist hotel and as a training center for artists who cannot afford professional development themselves.
Our work is free for selected artists who meet our selection criteria, but we also expect a high level of progression, skill and love for your own art.
We are financed by donations, endowments, endorsements, memberships and, shortly, by issuing our own crypto token and by issuing our projects as NFTs and digital and physical releases.
Furthermore, we generate income as a music publisher, music label and artist management and donation-based free services such as online mixing & mastering, offering our teaching content with our online academy as well as our on-site master classes. Finally we will organize events once we move to our new campus.
Helping with DNFTs ?…
…with a “charitable social DNFT ” it is possible for us to launch our NPO Projects and immediately dive into the working phase.
…supports the sustainability of our NPO and its Artists.
What is a DNFTs ?
…our definition of a “charitable social NFT (Non Fungible Token”.
… D = Donation N = Non F = Fungible T = Token. That means our DNFT does not really contains any Art or Music. You buy that NFT and support our Mission & Vision. The good News is – everybody buying our DNFT gets access to our Token Launch White List and will receiving free Airdrops of our upcoming Token. In other words you have some benefits helping us. Also included is a Voucher Code for a 95% Discount for the Song donated by Andy Moon % Cockpitcrew that you can hear in our Image Video above.
…you support a charitable non-profit organization with a donation that gives you something in return? A donation that gives you some great Music Arts, but still helps! A donation that you listen to and enjoy and use even if you trade or sell the DNFT ?
…a DNFT that makes sense and has a clear charitable mission? Then it’s time to get to know our DNFTs!
We would like to underpin our DNFT´s with two quotes from Philanthropist and Investor Sir John Templeton.
“Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth… Happiness comes from giving, not getting.”
“The best investment with the highest return and the lowest risk is a donation”

First of all, the Sophisticated Culture Foundation is basically what you could call a start-up organization. But a non-profit organization. To implement our mission, we need your projects. The first artist project productions are not expected to start before January 2023. However, since we are already starting to allocate the coveted places in our studio, you can already submit your project to us.
Here are the guidelines for our funded Project program.
Our labels Art Unnamed | Art Unnamed Deep (underground and commercial electronic music) as well as Sophisticated Culture Records (pop, rock, jazz, country, blues, classical, singer-songwriter or whatever you like to introduce to us) accept your release-ready demos.
As Publishers we are also happy to get your music dealt to the right person at the known labels or make sure you get a good sync opportunity.
With an exceptional marketing budget and distribution through major distributors and Publishers we will shortly become an Independent Major. If you want to be an artist and want to live your artistic freedom and not be bound by unfair contracts, then send us your music.
With your release with us you get a fair 50/50 split with the label as well as a standard publishing contract (60/40 split). You also support our mission, as our share of the sales goes directly to our charitable projects. Here are the the details how to submit your Demo.
In 2018 we started planning the Sophisticated Culture Foundation in small circles. In 2021 we created the legal framework. 2022 is about funding and delivering on our mission through global expansion. Become part of us and get involved!
We are looking for branch managers, marketing specialists, music managers, sound engineers, music producers, IT and web design specialists, social content designers ( video + audio ), social media experts, influencers, talent scouts, academy teachers (online courses & recorded content), lawyers , charity/npo/ngo tax experts (US,IE,DE), charity/npo/ngo accounting experts (US,IE,DE) and all those who want to actively contribute to the future of the Sophisticated Culture.
Our newly acquired Label Art Unnamed Deep comes along with two new Artists and there releases. Since early 2022 all profit from the Label sales goes to 100% into the Sophisticated Culture Foundations projects. Art Unnamed Deep (Cat No: AUD) is our support to the underground electronic music scene, while the main label Art Unnamed (Cat No: AU) under distribution with Sony Music | The Orchard, will concentrate on commercial Electronic Dance Music. Demos for both, underground and commercial electronic music, are now accepted either on our site or direct at the Art Unnamed Webpage.

We expect more music from returning Artist Richard de Clark, he delivered 3 readymade EPs and they will be released all this year on Art Unnamed Deep & Art Unnamed.
Andre Ritter is a new signing to Art Unnamed Deep. His debut on the label is expected for April 2022 with his EP called “Wake Up” He is an outstanding electronic sound designer with a PHD in Physics.
He describes his relationship to music in his own words: “And while the time of study was satisfying for my curiosity, I grew ever more detached from my own physical existence being focused on understanding reality. I kind of had achieved my childhood dream but at the same time l had lost it Painfully realizing that my mind is not to be detached from my physical existence, I welcomed it back with the abundance of experiences it would bring I let music into my life again but now focusing on creating it instead of “just” playing it. Art and especially music helps me to find the balance between the world of logic and the world of dreams. And I think this struggle between both worlds influences the music that I create.“
