Composed, performed and recorded by Where Is This from January to April 2011 at The Aluminium Factory. Where Is This is the solo noise project of Mark Ward. Founded in 2007 to explore and fuck about" with sound, WIT amassed a slew of recordings that, as well as becoming active in the noise trading scene, led him to create the small press label Bored Bear Recordings, whose blog is also the home of Where Is This. WIT releases can vary in style and could be described as noise, harsh noise, power electronics, ambient, drone, and everything in between. Nowadays, his work mostly focuses on harsh noise walls, sometimes with an ambient/drone edge, and creating highly textured walls of sound. Recent releases (amongst others) include Paunch (2013), Learning to Drown (2013), Rue Des Lombards (2012) and Narcissus at the Gym (2011). His records have been released on many record labels including Kovorox Sound, Victimology Rec., Deadline Noise Recordings, and Quagga Curious Sounds. In other lives, he is also a published poet and a cabaret performer. Cassette-only limited edition of 150 copies." - The Tapeworm.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
