NEHIL, SETH - Uva

20 City is proud to release Uva, a new CD by sound artist Seth Nehil. In the\r\nfield of electroacoustic music, Nehil is perhaps best known for his\r\nlongstanding partnership with John Grzinich and Olivia Block as Alial Straa,\r\nformed in 1994. Nehil also participated in the Orogenetics arts collective\r\ntogether with Michael Northam and John Grzinich, operating in Austin, Texas\r\nfrom 1996-99. Now based in Portland, Oregon, Nehil continues to collaborate\r\nwith Grzinich, Northam and Block in sound, performance and organization.\r\nSeth Nehil possesses an uncanny ability to create a wealth of sounds using\r\ninnovative recording and performance techniques, without relying on effects\r\nboxes and processors. He creates complex sound environments that are subtle,\r\nclear and close. His sounds seem to emphasize the very silence that\r\nsurrounds them, creating an infinite space for the listeners imagination to\r\nroam. Uva presents one track, just over 20 minutes in length. Objects in\r\nmotion, a complex layering of textures, circular sounds and harmonies that\r\nintensify and recede... these are the constituent parts of this engaging new\r\nwork. The term uva" means grape, associated with ferment and intoxication,\r\nand is also associated with "ova" (the womb, birth, new forms). Uva thus\r\nimplies the intoxication of new forms, the pleasure and disorienting quality\r\nof this music, the ferment of its creation, and the birth of its reception\r\nthrough the ear." - Richard di Santo.

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.
