"Among numerous small run releases A3&B is the debut LP release by Niklas Adam. Recorded and mixed in the summer and fall of 2009 in East Jutland. A3&B represents a change in Adams early practice with electronic music, which during 2008 was intervenedby a focus on near-static and reductionistic acoustic music. In addition to exploring the two sided format of the vinyl, A3&B investigates emptiness, perception of time and focus fatigue as primary compositional elements. Favoring the progress of occurrences and textural over tonal development A3&B is equal active environment and static object.
Niklas Adam works with performance- and installation art in addition to music. Runs the shared studio space ILS FYKSI, producing music for himself and others. Adam has been active in the improvised music scene for several years, touring and working in Europe,Japan, Russia and the US. He has collaborated with Mattin, Toshimaru Nakamura, Jim Denley and Anders Vestergaard among others, and is a part of the Norwegian artist group Verdensteatret, in which he works with sound, programming and electronics. Adam also forms part of the trio Tigers Mind. niklasadam.oddodd.org

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.
