VACCINA, LINO CAPRA - Arcaico Armonico

2015 release. "Following his time in Aktuala, Lino Capra Vaccina published a seminal album in 1976, Antico Adagio, recently removed from the clutches of the vultures of rare disk from Die Schachtel (DS 027-1LP/DS 027CD). A few years after, another unmissable gem waiting for future reprints. Back to the studio after the incredible success of the reprint of Antico Adagio, Lino wanted to continue on the path laid out in his historical album: compositions, intuitions, emotions that were maturing for years, resting as the like of a good Borgogna wine, now ready to be shared with a wider audience. Also, for this new work, to his percussion, gong, tablas, bells, vibraphone, cymbals, dishes, and strange instruments natives Lino did not want to apply any "trick". All the sounds you'll hear in this extraordinary journey are strictly acoustic, no any kind of electronics are involved. Playing with tape delays, co-adjuvanted by a sound engineer visionary as Alberto Callegari, located at Elfo Studios which is a wonderful state-of-the-art place amidst the woods in the country of Piacenza. Max Marchini has produced this album with pure analog intents. Lino wanted around him three companions extraordinary as Paolo Tofani, legendary composer and guitarist of Italian prog/avant-garde band Area at the Mandhura for a breathtaking duet in "Dialoghi Tra Suoni (Dialogues Between Sounds)", Camillo Mozzoni on oboe, oboe d'amore, and English horn wove arabesques of arcane memory in "Archaic Armonico", and the old mate Juri Camisasca who stretched layers of voices in the enchanted "Ancrestrale Andante (Andante Ancestral)". Eons away from any new age suggestions, the music of Lino Capra Vaccina, in constant evolution, discovers pages submerged by ancient memories shared. The throb of skins beatings brings scents of the time; together with the voice, that as well remembered by Joan La Barbara, it is the original instrument. An album that marks a new stage in the new music. A disc where the sound is at the center, as the Klang contrapposto Foné, in an emotional universe of incomparable beauty that takes the listener to a different perception of time and space. A true masterpiece that is about to became a very sought-after item, this first limited edition of individually numbered and hand-bounded." - Dark Companion.

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.
