"Two previously unreleased recordings from Philip Corner's Gong/Ear series of works. Side A was recorded on a South German night train ride in 1990, side B in the Alps in 1994.
"Riding the rails. Down the Rhine at-night alone in a compartment making music for my-self with those Korean-shaman-cymbals given as a gift from Ho-Sun Cheon (husband of Hong-Hee Kim who later will organize the festival 'The SeOUL of Fluxus' and invite-me come-and-participate) when he was cultural attaché to Denmark and came to the 'Fantastics' festival in Roskilde) ... yes consider them part of the Gong/Ear series of (call them) Metal Meditations which started manyyear befor from HighSchool teaching, an Experimental Music wher i turnd-out to be the lerner, reducing the possibl-abilitys of all resonant metals to a rezonant essensetial, and so following me my whole life into now. In to the Rail Road wher outersound ov an other kountry enters into my manipyulayshunz ov those sacred circles. At othertimes that sound going-out to be ears of other dancers and so their bodys body'smove-ments coming bak to me as a kind-ov audiovisual feedbackloop---many ov such artistic lovers, until coming in-a-way to that same Korea sound enshrined forever on the 'Gong/Ear: Shaman' recording: The Wormhole CD completing a circl in-a-way even bak to Korea.

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.
