Perhaps not quite a sweatshop. But years ago, legions of unemployed and underemployed Eastern European musicians enabled one record label to churn out CDs by the dozen, selling them at low prices while still enjoying a good return. That label has since grown to a major player in the classical music world.

Now Hollywood filmmakers and London video game producers are finding that having their soundtracks recorded offshore can save them big money. One company obliges them with Czech musicians, who are often paid one-seventh to one-fifth what their US and UK counterparts make.
