ANDERSEN, ERIC - Margrethe Fjorden

"Recital present its first ever Blu-Ray edition, Eric Andersen's Margrethe Fjorden. Produced in 1996 by Fluxus artist Eric Andersen, the citywide Intermedia event included performances from Alice Damas, Willem de Ridder, Larry Miller, and other artists from around the world. Inspired by the mysterious tale of Queen Margrethe the First (1353-1412), the multi-sensory event was comprised of three major themes: Union, Woman, and Faith. Over four hours of video is presented, from a full organ concert held in the Roskilde Cathedral, replete with models on stilts and toy frogs hopping through the pews, to a helicopter "air ballet" dancing over the water at night. The whole town became the stage for the three performance evenings. The immersive handheld footage flows between the circus-like events, navigating the streets, spilling between events. A surreal home-movie quality. The original press release reads: "Margrethe Fjorden is everything; its near and far, quiet and violent. It smells, its wet, burning and at times foreign and disturbing. Often it feels secure and humorous. There will be live sheep, a child birth, a car crash, window-washers, wheelchairs and trekkers. People will unite and separate again. A world of conception where the audience enters another reality..." Also included with the Blu-Ray is a curated audio-CD with six elements from the videos, beginning with the entire Eric Andersen organ concert performed by Yuzuru Hiranaka, and ending with the "A piacere (Fog Drifts Across the Meadow)" by Ib Nørholm and Eric Andersen; a 100+ person choir positioned on the Roskilde Fjord with a solitary amplified flutist performing from a small boat. Blu-Ray discs are region-free data discs (complete with menus), and can play on any BluRay player. Includes 36-page pamphlet, red satin fabric; also includes digital download for audio and private links for streaming the videos online." - Recital.

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.
