ELEH/NANA APRIL JUN - Observations & Momentum

"The Touch label presents the Observations & Momentum split LP as a great opportunity to hear noise minimalist Eleh and Swedish visual/sound artist Christofer L_ɬ§mgren aka Nana April Jun at their finest. Nana April Jun's track Sun Wind Darkness Eye" is taken from the album The Ontology Of Noise (TONE 037CD), particularly because it stands out as being perfect for a vinyl edition. In the same time-frame, the series of releases by Eleh on Important Records attracted the Touch labels attention. These homages to La Monte Young, Pauline Oliveros and Charlemagne Palestine, as vinyl-only limited editions, stunned with their acuity and passion for detail. There was something acutely other in their sound. Eleh, also, is an artist who prefers the work to speak for itself, and has other provocative ideas about noise. The digital is questioned by a commitment to a working practice based around analog tone-generators and letter-press printed covers. The Important Records/Taiga releases are now sought-after with a passion by anyone who recognizes something truly special occurring. On this recording, Eleh develops the waveforms that the Important Records series started. The split vinyl format is a great meeting point for this idea of digital persona and analog privacy. The effect, it is hoped, is for the vinyl to represent a digital question: that this LP summons up a universal sound and an intimate sphere of operations, which is, of course, a continuing dilemma. Limited edition of 1,000 copies. Art & photography by Jon Wozencroft." -- Touch.

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.
