WEAVER, JANE - Neotantrik Globes (Suzanne Ciani, Andy Votel, Sean Canty)
"This recording of Jane Weaver re-scored by Neotantrik (Suzanne Ciani, Andy Votel, and Sean Canty) has been described by Andy Votel as the incidental music" counterpart to the conceptual soundtrack of The Silver Globe (EGGS 019CD, EGGS 019LTD-CD, 2014). Invoking and refracting Weavers hugely acclaimed The Silver Globe in one engrossing session recorded in Bergen, Norway, as part of an installation at the end of 2014, Neotantrik Globes contains Weavers original material dissected, atomized, and diffused into a side of mercurial, open-ended electronics and mechanical process. Weavers sylvan melodies, harmonies, and vibes are scrambled, extruded, and smeared so that one hears their morphing aspects in a swirling lightshow strafing from windswept ambience thru nebulous synth-space, garroting string-tension, and siren-like drone-pop to a screw-twisting denouement. The album is also notable for Cianis use of some specially commissioned Buchla modules -- some of the first pieces produced by Don Buchla in years -- plus a Nagoya Harp played through a fuzz pedal and dulcimer fed through a space-echo. Its totally absorbing and is perhaps one of thee strongest recordings from the trios one-of-a-kind setup, given an added dimension by Weavers hugely evocative voice. Single-sided LP. Artwork by Andy Votel. Edition of 500." - No Label.
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.
