DEMPSTER, STUART - On The Boards

Stuart Dempster has been involved in a variety of new music endeavors over the last 40 years. He organized the ensemble to record Terry Rileys landmark piece In C for Columbia Records; commissioned works from Luciano Berio, Ernst Krenek, Pauline Oliveros, and several others; gave David Tudor a place to stay while developing Rainforest; participated in the U.S. premiere of Cornelius Cardews Treatise; toured with Merce Cunningham Dance Company alongside such luminaries as David Behrman, Takehisa Kosugi, and Tudor; founded Deep Listening Band with Oliveros; and much more. However, he has only released a few solo recordings of his own work during that time: In The Great Abbey Of Clement VI, originally released on LP by 1750 Arch and later reissued by New Albion Records, and Underground Overlays from the Cistern Chapel, also on New Albion. This is a third, originally released on cassette only in 1986 and receiving limited distribution. Unlike the others, this documents Stuart in front of, and with, an audience. This is important as Dempster works with the audience, two pieces in particular using them to add to textures he is creating and bringing them into the music. Dont Worry, It Will Come takes this a step further, using a series of hoses hidden underneath the audience seats with rather humorous results. The bulk of the disc is focused on his meditative buzzing and droning, skillfully drawn from unique didjeridus and the instrument he is best known for playing, trombone. - Anomalous.

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.
