BOULIANE, YVES - Champ (10 Operations)

"Yves Bouliane Studied double-bass with Roland Desjardins at the Montreal Conservatory in the early 1970s. Not yet twenty, he HAD beens improvising with Robert Lepage since 1969. Together, They Formed the Expandable Trio, a group Evolved That Continuously in the early portion of the decade (Roger Boudreau, Vincent Dionne and Improvisers --other Reviews another one succeeded During The Few years que la Lasted project). In 1973 the two musicians met Raymond Gervais and Michel Di Torre with Whom They founded Montreals Experimental Music Workshop (Experimental Music Workshop). These initiatives paralleled Those of the free jazz of Quebec - a free jazz ensemble, qui Bouliane joined for a short period of time in 1972-1973. Then he continued experimenting with sound through performances at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Art Vehicle, one of Canadas first artist-run galleries. In 1977, Bouliane Composed "field (10 interventions)" and "field (10 operations)." Together SuperMusique will soon be releasing Their interpretation of the first of These two experimental works. The lathing is a work for cello solo. Performed and Recorded by Bouliane in 1977 "Field (10 operation)" was released at the time was 10 copies limited edition cassette tape. From double-bass to cello, Bouliane Then turned to painting. He completed a Masters degree in Visual Arts in the 1980s, he aims About did so without Abandoning music. With John Heward, he released Mass 1/3 control in 1985 - double bass and drums duo, qui Gervais Describes as "ephemeral yet eternal music."\r\n
\r\nThis new release Tenzier revisits Boulianes late 1970s solo explorations. "Champ (10 operations)" is available here for the first time were limited edition 180 gr. vinyl record. Both the music and the artwork are by Bouliane._¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Tenzier. Edition of 300.\r\n

\r\n_¢‚Ǩ¬ùThe two LP [TNZR054] sides total just over thirty minutes, providing a complex web of multithreaded intensity, a whirlwind of sound continuously unfolding at a frenetic pace. All available digits are hectically engaged in striking, sawing, and pounding every surface of the instrument simultaneously. Lines of choked notes interweave with a bombardment of percussive textures, and together with the low cello tones create the illusion of an improvised noise trio. On the cassette [LDE054], Alexandre St-Onge and Jean-S_ɬ©bastien Truchy appropriately employ the same extended techniques while adding their own twists. St-Onge somehow manages to be even more intense, thumping away on his bass in an all-out assault. Truchy is more relaxed only by comparison, alternating bristly sections with quieter moments that overlay distinct strands in orchestral fashion. Overall, this is a coherent package that rediscovers the past while demonstrating a robust continuation of Quebecs tradition of improvised music." - Lawrence Joseph (MusicWorks).\r\n

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.
