"Christian Kobi is one of the leading names on the improv scene in Bern, Switzerland. His work includes collaborations with Phill Niblock, Jürg Frey, Taku Sugimoto, and Keith Rowe. His new album, Cathedral, closes a trilogy for saxophone solo that started with Canto (2010) and r a w l i n e s (2013), and which was recorded in the former Swisscom high-bay warehouse -- probably the largest underground space in Bern. That space serves Christian as a place of exploration of sound, silence and action in space. Cathedral is an extensive piece that is built from the articulation of discrete blocks of sounds that allow you to enter a new listening universe proposed by Kobi, as they seek to amplify a range of micro-textures, feedbacks, mysterious extended techniques, whispers and passages where sound is a pure, dramatic, and vague exhalation in an empty space. Kobi uncovers a wide range of sounds, which he extracts from the instrument in a singular sonic monologue, making Cathedral a radical experience of listening and investigating the possibilities of the saxophone. Christian Kobi was also part of the compilation Interactions: A Guide to Swiss Underground Experimental Music (BR 120LP, 2019). Edition of 300." - Buh Records .
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.
