DARGE, MONIEK - Soundies (Selected Work 1980-2001)

Moniek Darge has been active as a composer, violinist, performer and audio artist since the early 70s. She is most widely recognized as one half of the pioneering new music group Logos Duo alongside her partner Godfried-Willem Raes. The Logos Duo, which operates under the umbrella of the Logos Foundation, have been celebrated both at home in their native Gent, Belgium and on the international stage. They have performed their work in countries as diverse as Brazil, New Zealand, Japan and the US. However, Monieks solo work has been harder to locate, the last published collection being Sounds of Sacred Places (Igloo Records, 1987). Soundies is the first in a series of releases from Kye that aims to bring Monieks solo material before a wider audience. Soundies contains the following work: Sand (1980) -for two percussionists with tape (electronics) and one participant from the audience / Stormfugle (1981) -for two performers, voice, tape (electronics and voice), slides, film, clarinet and violin / Fairy Tale (1983) -for vocals, violin and tape (koala sounds and dog-growling) / Harpje (1995) -for harp samples and performance / Caete (1997) -for soundscapes, live musical objects and duo / Verbondenheid (1999) -for voices, Turkish turtle and live musicians / Turning Wheel (2001) -for voice, live violin and soundscape. Comes in an attractive 4-panel digipak graced with original art by Moniek. -- KYE.

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.
