"Rüdiger Carl is one of the most important figures to have emerged from European free jazz. Musicians Oliver Augst and Christoph Korn, who are a generation younger, work at the cross-roads of improvisation, installation, electronics, and theory. Oliver Augst, Rüdiger Carl, and Christoph Korn have appeared as Blank in different projects and releases from FMP and GROB international. Their latest project takes the theme of "collection" as a starting point. Oliver Augst, Ruediger Carl, and Christoph Korn have sifted through their own recordings and releases from recent years, and have broken them down into microscopically small parts, creating countless strange and colourful fragments. These fragments are then recorded on vinyl in the form of 240 locked grooves. "Duden" is not only a very special recording, but an instrument in itself for Blank will use the locked grooves to perform live with three recordplayers instead of their usual instruments - a genuine mixture between post-turntablism and improvised music. Limited on 400 copies, comes with stunning artwork on extra thick cover by Tobias Rehberger." - Eventuell.
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.
