BURRASTON, DAVID - T.H. Cycle

Ultra-minimal digital modular chaotics setup recorded direct to two-track. David Burraston (aka Dave Noyze aka Bryen Telko) is an artist/scientist involved in technology and electronic music/art since the late 1970s. Self-taught in the areas of music composition/technology, generative art, chaos, and complex systems, he is recognized as a leading practitioner/theorist in the field of generative music, producing both peer-reviewed publications and musical compositions. Burraston is a peer-reviewer for Leonardo Journal, Leonardo Music Journal, Computer Music Journal, and is on the editorial board of Leonardo Transactions. His PhD thesis developed and applied fundamental new concepts, arising out of generative music practice, to a key problem in complex systems. Burraston has been running his own independent analog/digital research music studio, Noyzelab, since 1981. He has performed music/video sets and created sound art installations around the world at a wide variety of events (e.g. Liquid Architecture, Electrofringe, Big Day Out, Floating Land Festival, Wired Open Day). He designs and builds his own synthesizer modules based on his theories of chaos and complex systems science. He has been featured in many music/art publications (from The Wire to RealTime Arts). He continues to release his own particular brand of field recordings, generative music, and noise experiments on a number of labels such as MIT Press, Alku, Cataclyst, Meds, Engraved Glass, Lo Editions, Taiga, Tochnit Aleph, Sevcom Edition, Beta Bodega Coalition, Creativity & Cognition Studios, and his own Noyzelab imprint. He has worked with many diverse collaborators and artists such as Aphex Twin, MIT Media Lab, William Barton, Alan Lamb, Chris Watson, Russell Haswell, Robin Fox, Chris Mann, Dave Phillips, and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. He is also part of the team that designs and builds Long Wire installations at The WIRED Lab. - Cassauna.

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.
