"Buh Records presents Anexo3, the debut album by Jaime Oliver La Rosa (Peru) and Ensemble KLEM (Spain). Anexo3 was composed in 2017-2018 over residencies in Bilbao, Lima, and Santiago de Chile, through elaborated processes of sound design, experimentation, improvisation, recording, and reflection. Often processed beyond recognition, violin, flutes, and saxophones along güiros, motors, and an aluminum plates system, struck and induced into resonance through feedback processes controlled by microphones, transducers, and computer software and joined by Oliver's MANO computer-based instrument. The sonic world of Anexo3 ranges from metallic sonorities of the instruments and the industrialized cities we work in, the feedback systems we inhabit, and soundscapes of imaginary nature. A forty-minute structured improvisation, Anexo3 is partially notated with traditional music notation, graphic notation, text indications, and inscriptions on the instruments themselves. The work is also heavily encoded in a software that shapes the ensemble's sound and the set of actions the musicians must make to control the temporal evolution of the piece. Jaime Oliver is one of the most important creators of instruments for electroacoustic music performances, and has received several international awards." - Buh.
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.
