KALENDAREV, YURI - Sound Sculptures

"Bronze silkscreened custom designed heavy natural cardboard digipak, complete with booklet in Italian and English. 300 hand-numbered copies. Yuri Kalendarev belongs to the generation of Russian underground non-conformist artists -- the dissidents of the 70s. He has been working for 30 years with different media such as granite sculpture, land art and light. He came upon the sonic possibilities of his work while exploring the intersection of sculpture and sound vibrations. His Sound Plates are forged with hammers and fire out of acoustic bronze compounds. They are designed to generate a large range of frequency oscillations, from massive low-frequency drones to deep percussive sounds that allow multiple interactions with the listeners inner being. In redefining the concept of sculpture in pure sound terms, the work of Yuri Kalendarev aims to explore a new aural experience beyond the act of listening, an investigation into the realm of pure acoustics. The performances captured on this CD represent the crystallization of the physicality of Kalendarevs sound sculptures, his attitude to rhythm, and his ability to create an atmosphere of deep concentration, silent communion, and mystery." -Die Schachtel

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.
