CORNER, PHILIP - 40 Years And One: Philip Corner Plays The Piano

Solo piano works, performed by the composer, recorded in 1998. Philip has vision, he did something nobody else did, he brought the expressive into indeterminacy (he calls it non-compulsive indeterminacy). Hes also one of the only composers I know who can give you a handful of worlds (notes) for a score, suggestions and alternatives for a realization and create wonderful expansive vistas of music and sound. Philip loves sound(s), he really listens and relishes (cherishes) the sensual aspects of perception. When he plays the piano there is a tremendous sensitivity (sensibilité), his own art of touching and caressing the keyboard. He also loves embellishments, whether in Korean classical music or in the late French baroque of Marin Marais or Fran-ɬßois Couperin. Theres humor too, hes very funny (as many of his fluxus performances and art works will show) and his universal and non-conformist approach to life is extremely refreshing in a (music-al) world still dominated by the dull mainstream of academia." -- Anton Lukoszevieze. Featured pieces: 1. 7 Joyous Flashes (3:45) 2. Concerto for Housekeeper (5:58) 3. Short Piano Piece IV (2:51) 4. Short Piano Piece IX (2:07) 5. Short Piano Piece XIII (1:50) 6.

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.
