KONSTRUKT/PETER BROTZMANN/HUSEYIN ERTUNC/DOGAN DOGUSEL/BARLAS TAN OZEMEK - Eklisia Sunday
Edition of 350. "Eklisia Sunday was recorded live in front of a small audience on May 15th, 2011 at Eklisia - an old chapel built in the 17th century in G_ɬºm_ɬº_Ö__l_ɬºk, a small village near Bodrum. This improvisation features the Konstrukt collective - which is Korhan Futac_Ѭ± (tenor & soprano saxophones), Umut _ɂİa_Ñ__lar (electric guitar), _ɂÄìz_ɬºn Usta (double bass, djembe, gong, bells), Korhan Arg_ɬºden (drums) - incredibly enriched by the presence of Peter Br_ɬ_tzmann (on tenor), H_ɬºseyin Ertun_ɬß (acoustic piano, k_ɬºst_ɬºfon, gong), Do_Ñ__an Do_Ñ__usel (double bass, k_ɬºst_ɬºfon) and Barlas Tan _ɂÄìzemek (electric guitar). The result of the combination is simply marvelous, because Br_ɬ_tzmanns unique phrases perfectly match with the sound of what confirms to be a well-coordinated collective. "The Turkish free jazz outfit Konstrukt might be considered the most evolved improvisational band working in jazz today. Founded, not in the hotbeds of jazz, London, New York, Chicago, Wuppertal or Krakow, their isolation is the key to their success. Well, isolation and observation." - Mark Corroto, All About Jazz.
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.
