-¢‚Ǩ-ìPiano denouement and the bare scraps of a dance recital. Vitrine is honored to present new work by London-based artist Tom White. In less than a decade of public performance, White has amassed an impressive oeuvre stretching across a multimedia platform including, but not limited to, installation, film and sound art. Automated Evangelism compliments previous releases on storied labels such as Chocolate Monk, Alien Passengers and Imminent Frequencies. Radio and wind bear witness to sonic intervention. An obstinate clarion. Vibrant new realities manifest through the forensic trace of tampering. Moments unfold in sequences of sense rather than chronology. Placing one foot in front of the other creates an inevitable trail. The physical motion of tape mirrors the cadence of footsteps. As spatial and temporal continuity is dissolved by method of the hand and ear, its replaced by a mental continuity - the closed loop revolving amidst thinking. Automated Evangelisms play of the uncanny and dissonant against coherent unity is reminiscent of the light surrealism of John Hudak or Damian Bisciglia, but the pleasures herein remain distinct to White. A constant mystery of performance autonomously folds back into studied archive. Overheard brilliance, tape, presence - it approaches beauty. Sold out at source.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Vitrine.
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.
