No term limits.
Poking around the 12k site the other night I discovered that the sublabel, TERM., is still active. Excellent news for both you and me. 0's and 1's need only apply. The label exists solely online and seems to be an outlet for, well, whatever the hell strikes label head Taylor Deupree's fancy. Of special interest to the the art crowd reading this will be term.17 (Steve Roden's Amnesia) and term.18 (Sawako.Richard Chartier.Shinjiro Yamaguchi). Roden and Chartier are both gallery and museum vets at this point in the game. If you're not familiar with their work, I recommend that you change that. Plus, both pieces are a nice introduction to the label. If you're like me you'll end up enjoying every single 0 and 1 that you find there. Also, all releases are free. Generous music given in a generous spirit. Nice.
