V/A - The Colours Of The Prism, The Mechanics Of Time
2012 release. "Featured Artists: John Cage, La Monte Young, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Meredith Monk, Gavin Bryars, Richie Hawtin. From John Cage to techno, through minimalism and post-modernism. This film was inspired by the itinerary of a oegap-bridger: Daniel Caux, a musicologist, essayist and radio producer, who made endless discoveries in the fields of experimental, minimalist, repetitive, postmodern and techno music. His contribution is all the more important in that these past four decades have been particularly rich in terms of creations, inventions and experimentation. His recent passing has reversed the roles, since many of the very musicians that he ardently supported wished to be present in this film. This film embraces a significant part of 20th century musical creation as seen from this "Daniel Caux belvedere" and bears witness to the music that these major figures are inextricably associated with, as well as their on-going creativity. The bonus to this film is based on the passionate opinions of Daniel Caux, musicologist, essayist, activist and radio producer, promoter and friend to all of the musicians present in the film."

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.
