In the past few years alga marghen successfully released on CD some of Anton Bruhin more experimental works. InOut, Rotomotor and the CD version of his first LP masterpiece from 1969 Vom goldabfischer, made many of you become familiar with the eccentric creations of this obscure Swiss artist. But for this new release alga marghen decided to concentrate on Anton Bruhins favorite instrument, the Jews harp. Included in this LP record are six breathtaking Jews harp pieces of pure genius. On Side 1 Apocalypt Rb- with sampling loop and Chor H+ with sampling loop and solo reverb pot, recorded in January 2000 while testing some modified Jews harp self-made instruments created by Zoltan Szilagyi. This virtuoso performance is improvised over to a loop-continuum sampled through a Casio child synth. On Side 2 the all-time-classic titled Maultrommel und Sprache (i.e. Jews Harp and Speaking) where Bruhin is scientifically investigating the use of Jews harp in rendering human voice. Recorded in 1994 this piece, divided in five short paragraphs, move from the very basic structure of language (vocals, diptongues, triptongues) and constructs a perfectly accomplished sonic statement. Also on Side 2 are three pieces from 1995 for Electric-Trumpi-2, the only existing second generation electric Jews harp, constructed specially by Szilagyi for Anton Bruhin. Towards the G-Spot, ET2 with fly and cough and ET2 extreme filling grandly complete the collection of limousine musics selected for this record. Gatefold sleeve with large 8-page booklet reproducing four mind-blowing drawings released between 1969 and 2006 that well prove Anton Bruhins ultra-modernistic talent of the most refined nature. Also included in the booklet with the complete score of Maultrommel und Sprache. Edition limited to 330 copies. - Alga Marghen.
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.
