ELECTRONIC MODULAR ORCHESTRA - S/T

Electronic Modular Orchestra: from Neil Young to Stravinsky. Curiosity is the element that allowed the birth of this project. Gabriele Bombardini, Nicola Peruch, Matteo Scaioli, and Max Vicinelli are musicians who have decades of experience in all fields of music. The desire to combine seemingly distant sounds such as the use of old analog synthesizers, a pedal steel that recalls the American folk tradition, and the modular synthesis that leads back to the so-called concrete musical research, was the challenge to face. Freedom of expression, contemporary quotations, improvisation, Stravinsky, Bartok, Reich, psychedelic rock, jazz, all that is musical emotion is taken as a stimulus for this research. - Soave.



Sound is made from the same matter of dreams that, as the sun rises, evaporate and leave a feeling of uncertainty. Just as when in proximity of a secret that will not be completely solved and wont allow you to retrace the succession of emotions that brought you to it. Instead we must learn to hold on to them, cultivate them, be able to understand and recognize them. To trust them. Sound, its colour, the essence of its tone, the vibrations that it leaves in the air. None of these can be described in words: the necessity to physically listen is ineffable. We can write a melody, a rhythm, a harmonically complex structure, an arrangement... But never the colour and taste of sound. In Electronic Modular Orchestras music you will find certain harmonies, melodies, rhythms, sounds and layerings of every kind. All of these spring from the sound that gives it life and most profound meaning. It is for this reason that listening to this work requires an intimate complicity from the listener to be able to appreciate the essence of the tale that the artists wished to create. Perceiving the voice even before form and other structural and musical elements that we are accustomed to recognize. There is no use to dwell on single tracks. Everyone will find his own personal vision and the road to their own emotions. The influences of this music are numerous: precise and restless geometries, celestial shades, the metaphysical, chaos, energetic sounds, cutting sounds, unpredictability and scrape. Listen to this disk on a good sound system, so not to frustrate the musicians intent. Take the necessary time to listen, and re-listen." - Franco Ranieri.

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.
