"Limited edition of 300 box sets. "Danish artist øjeRum (a.k.a. Paw Grabowski) has commanded a loyal following for his collage portraits of female subjects, while leading a dual life as a musician. Following the release of his debut album, There Is A Flaw In My Iris, øjeRum enjoyed a brief dormant period before returning to recording in earnest in 2014, unleashing a prodigious flurry of albums (many self-produced). Adorned with his beautiful collages, these physical recordings have become coveted works of art in their own right, the majority of which sold out instantly upon release. Fortunately for audiophiles and design aficionados alike, Art into Life has now reissued six of his early albums in a collectible six CD box set. This compendium of primarily acoustic recordings is a befitting testament to the raw, imminently personal emotion imbuing the artist’s work, capturing his distinct aural landscape as if privy to an intimate sketchbook of serene loops and ample helpings of atmospheric hiss.
Each CD in this special box set showcases photo prints, personally selected from the artist’s recent body of collages. Additionally, each box set includes a one-of-a-kind, handmade artwork, consisting of a leaf pressed into Japanese washi paper." - Art Into Life.
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.
