HAGGART, SCOTT - 117

"DISKONO 017 is a 45rpm 12 conceptual LP by Scott Haggart titled "117" . The A-Side Scott Haggarts original edit is "psychotopologically derived from a 0.7 millisecond recorded extract of a DISKONO performance (2000)." Six others (SCOTT HAGGART, EVOL, FELIX KUBIN, LARY SEVEN, CHARLIE MCALISTER, JAN VEN DEN DOBBELSTEEN) created alternate versions (resulting in seven total variations). Strict adherence was required to a rule of the versions being 1:17 seconds in duration, so as to absurdly explore the potentials of this 0.7 millisecond sound. Keywords : analog, feedback, fridge, beauty, horror sound pressure levels, implode. note : The performance is inspired by the presence of Diskono in Eindhoven, 2003 where they held a transatlantic telephone interview with PHIL MILSTIEN at the opening of the exhibition I AM A CAMERA (a JaDa-Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen/Danielle Lemaire concept-curators, also behind the telephone piece). Founded in the spring of 1998 and described as a "a Scottish multi media cabal masquerading as a record label" , DISKONO was initially based in Central Scotland but befitting its constitution as a complex carbohydrate, the constituent pieces of its chemical structure are now strewn all over the globe ; New York, London, Moscow, Brussels etc. The known and affiliated elements of Diskono were/are Klaus Oldanburg, Ruth Random, Findo Gask, Dr. Barnes Advocaat, Gunter Saxenhammer, Ttocshagg Forfib, Joel Ongthorne, Kosten Koper ; although these may be pseudonyms for the same person or persons. Together or alone, they / he / she operated a record label releasing sound art & "avant-garde flicks of the wrist" as well as curating savory pretentiously artistic projects such as the exhibition Revisionland by Alejandra and Aeron (which won an Award of Distinction in Digital Music at Prix Ars Electronia 2002) and physical remixseries of 7" records with Aerospace Soundwise and Prix Ars Electronica winner Janek Schaefer. Diskono also released music by blue-chip figures such as Felix Kubin, Alejandra and Aeron, Kid 606, Pimmon, Nomex, Ashtray Navigations, JaDa, People Like Us, Francisco Lopez, Boards Of Canada, Goodiepal, V/vm, Hrvatski, Aavikko." - Diskono.

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.
