Limited reissue of this 1983 LP. Second pressing of 100 copies. "The artwork is a remake of the original one. It represents an abstract topographical map of Seward Park bay in Washington Lake, Seattle, where the music was recorded. With the record, you will find a square insert (30X30cm) with the full artist description of his work." - Les Giants.
"Music for Land and Water was produced in 1983 following completion of my work on the Imposed Order and The Neo-Realist (at Risk) albums. Acting as a sort of proto- lower case construct, MFLAW was composed for an ensemble of five closed-loop tape players — each player running a different duration loop — as part of a month-long gallery installation. Instrumentation was limited to a Moog and a Sequential Circuits synthesizer and a Hohner Pianet. Processing was simple: a Lexicon delay line, some spring reverbs and basic tape manipulation. Pitch and time compatible phrases and fragments were duped against a uniform click track, edited, isolated and mixed down to the five monaural closed tape loops. It was later “performed” in a presentation including works by Marc Barreca and Steve Fisk in Seattle's Seward Park open-air amphitheater." - K. Leimer, July 2018.
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.
