PILLADO-MATHEU, SANTIAGO - La Revolucion Y La Tierra
"La Revolución Y La Tierra is a Peruvian documentary film that became an unprecedented success in Peru, after its premiere in 2019, turning into the most-watched Peruvian documentary of all time. Directed by Gonzalo Benavente Secco and produced by Autocinema, the film offers a vision of one of the defining chapters in recent Peruvian history: the Agrarian Reform, a law enacted by the government of Juan Velasco Alvarado in 1969 (within the context of the so-called "Peruvian Revolution"), which marked a before and after in a history of struggles for the land and citizenship in Peru. La Revolución Y La Tierra is a film about these struggles and the imageries built by Peruvian cinema throughout time. The soundtrack was made by Santiago Pillado-Matheu, a versatile Peruvian musician and sound artist, founder of the psychedelic rock group El Hombre Misterioso, and creator of sound installations having memory as theme. In this soundtrack, Pillado-Matheu develops a musical universe based on the use of Andean sounds, in evocative landscape pieces of melodic and ritualistic ambient and drone music, which progressively incorporate sound collages, using samples of peasant leaders' voices and footage from the film. You can also find electronic pieces that make a nod to the synthesizer music of the '70s, as well as psychedelic rock discharges and pieces of a hypnotic Afro-Latin lounge, which give unity to this sound mosaic that also greatly evokes the sound of an era, and that, having acclaimed Peruvian soundtracks such as Cholo, by El Polen, or Venas de la Tierra by Luis David Aguilar -- both released by Buh Records -- as a precedent, adds a new item to a series that seeks to disseminate milestones of film music made in Peru. La Revolucion Y La Tierra by Santiago Pillado-Matheu is released by Buh Records, with the support of Autocinema. Art by Goster. Edition of 300." - Buh Records .
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.
