REDOLFI, MICHEL - Desert Tracks

-¢‚Ǩ-ìSub Rosa present Michel Redolfis Desert Tracks as part of their Early Electronic Series, originally released by INA-GRM in 1988 alongside "Pacific Tubular Waves". In 1987, Michel Redolfi hit the California desert road during the fall, to catch those hypothetical poly-sensorial desert tones. He visited the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, Palm Canyon and came back with an extraordinary album of early electronic music, sparse and bright to express the crude light and the divine silences. In 1969, Michel Redolfi, with the co-foundation of the Groupe de Musique Expérimentale de Marseille, pursued his passion for electro-acoustic music at an early age. During the 80s and 90s he composed collaborative works with Luc Ferrari, Bernard Parmegiani, Pierre Henry and Jean-Claude Risset. As a resident of the United States from 1973 to 1984, he carried out his research with several new music centers, including the CME at the University of California in San Diego and the California Institute of the Arts. Also during this period he developed several collaborations with American composers. The natural elements highlighted by technology are a constant in Redolfis catalog: many of his electroacoustic pieces stylize and orchestrate sound matter, and are recorded in remote locations as on Pacific Tubular Waves, originally released with Immersion in 1980 (REGRM 014LP, 2015) and Jungles (1997). He currently heads a major studio in sound design, Audionaute, based in Nice, France. CD comes as a six-panel digipack with a 12-page book.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Sub Rosa.

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.
