ANDERSSON, HENRIK/HENRIK RYLANDER - Kluster/Information II/Gym Form Plus

"produced in \r\nconjuction with an exhibition at Fargfabriken, Stockholm in 2002. \r\nthe first side is a rather nice minimal piece, while the second is \r\nsomething quite different. - Anomalous. "Primarily Henrik Andersson and Henrik \r\nRylander are educated film and photomakers, with Rylander having some \r\nbackground as a drummer in Union Carbide Productions. Here they have \r\none collaborative side and each a solo piece on the other side. For \r\nthe collaborative side they created a piece which has 8 identical CD \r\nplayers playing 8 identical CDs. Each CD consists of 7 three second \r\ntracks with three tones (C, D, E, F, G, A and H). These CD players \r\nare played in a random way and develop by chance. The input sounds \r\nare sine waves, but they develop a strange organ like sound, which \r\nconstantly changes - after each 3 seconds. But even when you use 8 \r\nidentical players, it happens that the speed is a little bit \r\ndifferent so phase shiftings occur. Even if we leave out the ramble \r\nabout the religious aspects of the organ like sounds, its a very \r\nnice piece. On the other side there is first the Rylander piece. \r\nWorking in probably similar vein, but here the sound input is a beat \r\nloop. Very much an old Noto piece, which unfortunally drags on too \r\nmuch. Anderssons piece is based on guitar loops, which is maybe too \r\nshort to show what the possibilities could have been. Maybe a more \r\nconceptual and collaborative work like on the other side would have \r\nbeen a better idea." - Frans de Waard in Vital Weekly 318.

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.
