"Norbert Mng, cracked everyday-electronics. Recorded live at Espace Multimedia Gantner, Bourogne, August 22, 2010 by Remy Bux. During the work for Voice Crack duo Norbert Mng was one of the pioneers in the field of sound installation techniques usage in live improvised music. His instruments are cracked everyday-electronics, but sounds themselves are delivered from the mechanical properties of these devices. This kind of approach seems to be similar to Peter Fischli and David Weiss practices in the visual arts fields. The comparison of the film documentaries The Way Things Go" (1987) about Fischli / Weiss activities and "Kick that habit" (1989) about Voice Crack is quite correct. In the beginnings the Voice Crack sound works were conjured with post-industrial and noise practices of Borbetomagus or Hijokaidan, but in the end it resulted in the rise of XXI century free-improv and EAI movement. Nmperign duo, Jer_جø¬_Noetinger, Lionel Marchetti, eRikm, Andrea Neumann, Jason Kahn, Cor Fuhler, etc. Moslang was cooperating with most of these sound artists. After the Voice Crack finished all activities, Mng continued his sound explorations in the field of cracked everyday-electronics. His recordings started to be vivid and colorful, focused more on subtle and precise movements and thrills of the objects.\r\n"fuzz_galopp" is a composition of amplified pulsating sounds of cracked everyday-electronics. But the rhythm is a primal foundation of the sound texture. The similar approach was recently used by Pete Swanson and Neil Campbell, however Norbert Mng managed without sampler and drum machine. The whole recording is based on mechanic objects sounds only. On the other hand his music differs from Pierre Bastiens thanks to dense sounds and powerful dynamics. The pure pleasure of galloping fuzz experience!" - Daniel Brozek.

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.
