Oreledigneur is a new project by Giuseppe Ielasi, Renato Rinaldi and Alessandro Bosetti, focused on improvisation using various sound sources, from home-built small electric devices to found or natural materials/objects. In this case, the pieces are taken from different, but always very informal, sessions recorded directly to Dat with a stereo condenser microphone. No editing or processing. Side 1 (2 pieces, 19min.) Ielasi/Rinaldi duo, recorded in Ritas kitchen, July 17th 1999. Contact microphones, little electric devices, modified cd players through tiny car speakers, small objects. Side 2 (4 pieces, 19 min.) The first piece is a Bosetti/Rinaldi duo, recorded near the Tagliamento river (open air), August 1999. A long metal pipe with a microphone inside, played with stones and wood. The remaining music was recorded by the trio in Alessandros kitchen, October 1999, with piano strings and household objects. In Friuli (in the north-east of Italy) Oreledigneur means hares ears". This release is co-produced by Fringes (Italy) and Fusetron, and comes in an edition of 300 copies. Direct Metal Mastering, quality pressing, cardboard covers with printed handmade paper"-Fringes. Last few copies of this 1999 release.
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.
