featuring two sound poetry recordings from 1973, Arbeiten - ein Stück für alle" (already released as tape on the S Press label back in 1973) and "Cudrefin (minuit) - Found Music No.1" (previously unreleased). the first 250 copies include an onesided bonus 7inch with his track "Dont you may be, the ssential interview" from the famous "Futura - Poesia Sonora" boxset (Cramps Records)." - You Dont Have To Call It Music.
"Nikolaus Einhorn is a young German writer who has already produced a good number of sound poems. He is trying to realize a non-abstract oral poetry free from all written notation, a construction which comes directly from the mind and memory. "Dont you may be, the essential interview", composed in 1975 represents a hypothetical interview with the U.S. musician John Cage, the representative of non-music, that is, of that school which, by rejecting the forms and structures of composition, has brought about a crisis in traditional and contemporary musical composition, and which, using different techniques principally of the aleatory type, affirms the validity of musical silence, also on ontological grounds. In our opinion this "essential interview" establishes a series of tautological circularities, underlined by the repetition of Cages "smile / little laugh".Nikolaus Einhorn was born at Dresden in 1940. He studied German and English in Munich and earns his living as a teacher at the Dusseldorf high-school. In 1970 he co-founded the S Press Tape Series, a label that was dedicated to acoustical literature (sound poetry), which today is one of the most important means of diffusion of experimental poetry. He has published numerous essays on the avant-garde of the twentieth century and a volume of essays on the literary work of Kurt Schwitters, published by the magazine "Text + Kritik".He has also produced radio programs on such authors as Otto Nebel, Raoul Hausmann, Henri Chopin, and on the poetry of the North American Indians." - UbuWeb.
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.
