"Considered one of the most influential contemporary artists, Dieter Roth was consistent in his artistic search for inner self through and produced artworks in the various media, from graphics, drawings, and sculptures, to assemblages / ready-made, sound and music recordings.
Dieter Roth's Verlag was founded in 1974 under the name Dieter Roth's Familienverlag and renamed in 1978. The label gradually acquired something of a cult status the 1970s, and Colette Roper’s “Piano Pieces”, which was released in 1979, was one of the hardest to find album among Dieter Roth's Verlag catalogues. Much is unknown about Colette Roper and “Piano Pieces” was her only album. The front sleeve features a hand-drawn butterfly on yellow background, the rear sleeve features a photograph of women with a bunch of flowers in their hands and poems. And the work engraved on the vinyl is rough-hewn piano minimalism with a lot of hiss and fragile innocence. As with Dieter Roth's artworks, there is underlying feel of decay and metamorphosis. Primitive innocence and enigmatic elements featured in this obscure album will provoke various speculations about many other elements hidden inside.
Remastered by Jos Smolder in 2022. LP comes with a download code for the entire album.Split release between Art Into Life and Tochnit Aleph." - Art Into Life.
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.
