AROVANE + PORYA HATAM - Organism & Organism_evolution

Two albums by the Berlin-based electronic musician Arovane and Porya Hatami, one of the main protagonists of the vivid Iranian electronic underground, on a special double CD: experimental, field recording-based ambient sounds with elements of electro-acoustic music and musique-concrète. Since his return from a nine-year long hibernation in 2013, the Berlin-based electronic artist Uwe Zahn, alias Arovane, has been more productive than ever and released a dozen of solo and collaborative albums. Porya Hatami, one of the main protagonists of the vivid Iranian electronic underground, released several albums on labels like Hibernate and introduced himself as a skilled experimental sound artist exploring the balance between electronics and environmental sounds. 2017s Organism was the duos fourth collaboration. The 19 tracks, created using processed acoustic and electronic sources as well as field recordings, bring together the best of the two musicians: sophisticated electronic music of peaceful, even zen-like atmosphere with experimental twists. The brand-new Organism_evolution, as the title points out, develops further the aesthetics of Organism and reveals influences of musique-concrète and electro-acoustic music that place the tracks in a more experimental field. Using techniques like modular synthesis, granular synthesis, spectral processing, granular, resynthesis and resonator/modal synthesis, Arovane and Hatami used many different layers of processed sounds and field recordings to create depth and complexity -- with every new encounter, the listener will discover new sonic aspects and dive deeper into the multifaceted structures of the masterly sound-designed 23 compositions. Both albums, each a digital-only release originally, are bundled here as a limited edition two-CD in a special gatefold digisleeve. Mastered by Porya Hatami. Original artwork designed by Salah Ebrahimi. - Karlrecords.

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.
