"On the occasion of the exhibition Celeste at Copenhagen Contemporary, the artists and musicians CTM (Cæcilie Trier) and August Rosenbaum present their new album of the same name with Posh Isolation. The exhibition is an immersive installation structured in acts that has been created with the artists Lea Guldditte Hestelund and Ea Verdoner. Trier and Rosenbaum's songs and instrumental pieces can be found in the gallery as an element in a hybrid work of sculpture, video, and choreography that explores corporeality and transience. Their album Celeste presents these recordings as a standalone work. Rosenbaum is an acclaimed pianist and composer based in Copenhagen. He has won two Danish Music Awards for his solo work, and his list of collaborators includes Zeena Parkins, Kim Gordon, and Jesper Just. Trier is likewise based in Copenhagen, releasing music under her alias of CTM. As a revered cellist, vocalist and composer, Trier has been involved in a wide array of projects and collaborations across genres and disciplines. A suite of twelve pieces comprises the album Celeste. Each piece interlocks with another, and together it can be thought of as a prism through which the work's materiality is both conceptualized and felt. Having developed the sound material with the objects and surfaces in the exhibition, and phrasing the work with the movement and tactility of the space itself in mind, Celeste both renders the exhibition aurally and illustrates some of the sensuous qualities that can be found within it. Though the instrumentation -- predominantly cello, accordion, and piano -- is articulated clearly across the album, the resonances found within and around each instrument feels just as descriptive as the plaintive though curious melodies that they deliver. Between the medley of acoustic instruments and digital treatments, Trier's supernatural vocals linger. The lyrics give snapshots of characters and beings that drift from focus just as they enter, often ambivalently. The delicate compositions befit the tender themes, making it an engrossing parallel to its namesake installation. Mixed and co-produced by Malthe Fischer. Mastered by John Hannon." - Posh Isolation.
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.
