VINYL - Records And Covers By Artists

With over 800 artists records and other sound supports the exhibition Vinyl _جø¬_?? Records and Covers by Artists shows the dual facets _جø¬_?? visual and sound _جø¬_?? of a unique dimension in art. All the major 20th-century art tendencies are represented, ranging from early avant-garde movements through the high point of sound art in the 60s and 70s, to present approaches. The entity of record as sound support and cover as visual support has enabled artists to explore a new, rich field of creation. Transcending the limits imposed by traditional art forms and having had no conventional musical education, visual artists took advantage of their freedom to discover the creative possibilities offered by music, sound and noise or by language, voice and instruments and their manipulation.\r\nBased on the Collection Guy Schraenen, an unusually complete anthology of artists record works, the exhibition presents an international overview: from Dada to Fluxus, from the Futurists to Einst_ɬºrzende Neubauten", from Eric Satie to John Cage, from Laurie Anderson to Laibach, from Beuys to Warhol.\r\nArtistic verbo-vocal experiments are shown in their full diversity _جø¬_?? for example in the works of Fran_ɬßois Dufr_ɬ™ne, Sten Hanson, Ernst Jandl or the Beat-Generation.\r\nFor the pop and rock world, visual artists have created impressive works of art in the 31 x 31 cm sleeve format, among them Roy Adzak, Roy Lichtenstein, Raymond Pettibon, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol or Richard Hamilton, whose "White-Album"-Cover for the Beatles became a classic work of this genre.\r\nPhotographers like Robert Frank or Robert Mapplethorpe also appear in the visual word of the covers. The band "Kraftwerk" shows on the inside cover of their album from 1970 a full page photo by Bernd & Hilla Becher.\r\nVinyl is an exhibition for the eye and the ear: graphic works, multiples and objects from the field of sound art complement the visual world represented by the covers. In terms of acoustic presentation, around 300 records are at the visitors disposal, including many compilations.\r\nThe 250-page catalogue for this exhibition contains a fully illustrated discography.\r\nArtists in the exhibition:\r\nRoy Adzak, Pierre Alechinsky, Laurie Anderson, Karel Appel, John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Harry Bertoia, Peter Blake, Ulises Carri_ɬ_n, Henri Chopin, Salvador Dali, Hanne Darboven, Peter Downsbrough, Jean Dubuffet, Fran_ɬßois Dufr_ɬ™ne, Einst_ɬºrzende Neubauten, Brian Eno, Harald Falkenhagen, Peter Gordon, Franz Graf, Brion Gysin, Sten Hanson, Keith Haring, Bernard Heidsieck, Isidore Isou, Ernst Jandl, Joe Jones, Marcello Jori, Rolf Julius, Thomas Kapielski, Yves Klein, Les Levine, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Arrigo Lora-Totino, Christian Marclay, Cildo Meirelles, Joan Mir_ɬ_, Meredith Monk, Otto Muehl, Carsten Nicolai, Hermann Nitsch, Albert Oehlen, Roman Opalka, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Prince, Vladan Radovanovic, Gerhard Richter, Dieter Roth, Gerhard R_ɬºhm, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Erik Satie, Tomas Schmit, Kurt Schwitters, Michael Snow, Die T_ɬ_dliche Doris, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Andy Warhol, Lawrence Weiner, La Monte Young and ca. 1.000 more" - Neues Museum Weserburg Bremen.

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.
