EREWHON CALLING - Experimental Sound in New Zealand

Erewhon Calling: experimental sound in New Zealand \r\nis a lavishly-illustrated new publication from the \r\nAudio Foundation and CMR. It is a survey of how \r\na bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents \r\nhave forged new ways and new reasons to make \r\nnoise, here at the end of the earth. Edited by Bruce \r\nRussell (the Dead C.), in association with Richard \r\nFrancis and Zoe Drayton; the aim of this volume \r\nis to survey the full range of non-standard audio \r\npractices in contemporary NZ culture. The books \r\nremit runs from the borders of composed art \r\nmusic, through improvised noise, to deconstructed \r\nrockn pop filth; and every genre, every scene, \r\nevery permutation of unconventional audio practice \r\nin-between. The aim is not to be comprehensive \r\n(there is literally too much vitality and diversity for \r\nany book!). The hope is to throw a good handful of \r\ngravel into the pool. While not every eel will have \r\nbeen hit, the surface will have been rippled from \r\nshore to shore, which is more than anyone else has \r\neven attempted before. \r\n Erewhon Calling makes room for many voices, \r\nallowing multiple and possibly conflicting voices \r\nand points of view. A range of artists and informed \r\ncommentators mainly tell their own stories, describe \r\ntheir own work, and outline their own goals in \r\nworking on the fringes of audio culture. The readers \r\nof this important new source book will be able to \r\ndiscern their own meanings and make their own \r\nconnections from this thought-provoking and unique publication. - CMR.\r\n

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.
