Belgian audio/visual project founded in 1990 by Geert Feytons and Timo van Luijk. In 1993 Greg Jacobs joined the group and sound engineer Eric Faes became a regular member until 98. In 1996 Timo van Luijk moved to the background to concentrate on his personal musical work and Marc Wroblewski appeared in the fixed NMF line-up. The sounds for their compositions were generated by various selfmade instruments, the most extraordinary being stumps & trunks from dead trees. They composed music for various films, installations, theatre & dance-performances. With the death of Geert Feytons in 2006, the other members decided to stop performing and playing under the NMF banner. Greg Jacobs, Marc Wroblewski and Timo Van Luyk re-united as Onde. - Discogs.Timo Van Lujk: "Born in Finland, but living in Belgium, Timo has been an active participant in experimental sound activities in his current home.

Though his music has appeared on several labels, he also has his own label, La Scie Dorée." - Discogs. Limited edition of 120 numbered copies wrapped in aluminum foil.

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.
