180 G vinyl in mirrorfoil cover. Limited edition of 300 copies. "The album FELT is the result of a joint effort of the composers and artists Rune Søchting and Jonas Olesen. In their collaborative work they have explored the sonic potential of electromechanic movements, resonance and different modes of transmission of sound. This work has been presented at a number of concerts and can now be experienced on the vinyl release FELT. In their artistic investigation they have focused on the unpredictable effects that emerges in unstable systems. Their work have integrated unconventional objects and electroacoustic processes such as transducers mounted on glass, worn-out microphones, small devices such as bells, clocks etc. The various elements have been mounted and connected in often fragile structures through an ad-hoc approach. The unique and temporary structures have proven to exhibit often surprising sonic qualities that have been picked up by various types of microphones and coils. The resulting sonic imprints of the tiny movements and fluctuations have then been dramatically amplified and subsequently channeled through other objects that have served as acoustic and strange resonant containers. Overall, the sonic material on the album FELT unfolds in a dynamic between something fundamentally alien while at the same time being remarkably organic and tangible. What is presented is a strange sonic field that the listener is invited to explore. While a general characteristic of the quality of the material is of something ephemeral and the unstable the resulting state is one of sustained tension, a bit like a spinning top that has lost speed but maintains its movement, but in any moment can tilt and fall." - Rune Søchting.
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.
