HUNT, JERRY - Haramand Plane

Pogus is very honored to be able to reissue this recording of works by the late Jerry Hunt (1943-1993), originally released on What Next. Having long been fascinated by Hunts work, it is great to be able to have these last works of his available on CD once again. To quote Blue Gene Tyranny: Among the pioneers, Jerry Hunt was the rarest, most marginal explorer of a remote terrain. As his musical activities moved from the electronic sound pieces of the 1970s into the legendary performances of the 1980s, Hunt brought along with him a curiously rich and viable ecosystem of pieces, structuring principles, performing gestures, and theatrical personae. The sounds on this recording, created in 1993, are completely different from the ones that constitute normal or academic electronic music. The three sections of this electronic work constitute the composers last pieces. He regarded the recorded version of this work as a document for rehearing. The overall sound is the densest and most intricate in this one of a kind artists body of work. The three sections consist of interlocking audio and video optical discs which provide the fundamental image, sound and program control strings... action code pattern structures... for a group of transactional mimetic gesture exercises... inflection calls evoking... melody streams with simultaneous tracks of acoustic percussion. The sonic result is an entrancing, overwhelming, evocative shamanic performance of brilliantly designed electronic timbres. Please note: This release comes folded into quarters, ending up as a 5 -Ǭ- x 5 -Ǭ-" brochure style booklet (liner notes inside), with the CD in a paper sleeve, all inserted into re-sealable plastic sleeves. There is no jewel case, tray card, etc." -Pogus.

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.
