ROZMANN, AKOS - Implusioni I, II, III, De Tva, Med Tre Instrument
1999 release. Impulsioni is the collective title of three works which comprise the beginning of Rozmanns work within the field of electroacoustic music. Seen as compositions, Rozmann himself sees Impulsioni I-III as the earliest, almost primitively simple results of a line of composition which nonetheless has kept its importance for him. Impulsioni I is a true start from scratch for him, with the low first tone followed by soft, silvery sounds. The second piece utilized a pulse generator, and the third a machine available at the Royal Conservatory called a synthi. During this period, the composer used only synthetic sounds. It was not until later that he turned to concrete sound samples, such as organ tones, voice and other material. Despite the simple background of Impulsioni I-III, it was here that Rozmann became convinced that electroacoustic music is the greatest expressive device of all time, an opinion which he has steadfastly held throughout the years. Rozmanns art moves between many forms of society and civilization. Gregorian chant is placed next to songs by Buddhist monks, childrens voices next to the laugh of someone who is probably the Devil himself. -Hans Gunnar Peterson.
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.
